NW Portland Restaurant Homicide Victim Identified (Photo) - 09/25/21

The victim in Friday's homicide has been identified as Jacob Knight-Vasquez, 34. His family has been notified of his death and provided a photo for media release. They are not interested in media interviews at this time.

The Oregon State Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy and determined Knight-Vasquez died from a gunshot wound and ruled his death a homicide.

Homicide detectives do not believe Knight-Vasquez was the intended target of the shooting. Preliminary investigation indicates the suspect fired a gun into the restaurant from the outside, where the victims were struck, then left to the west on Northwest Glisan Street.

This is still an active homicide investigation. Anyone with information is urged to contact Detective Jason Koenig at Jason.Koenig@portlandoregon.gov 503-823-0889 or Detective William Winters at William.Winters@portlandoregon.gov 503-823-0466.

###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

One man is deceased and two others are injured after a shooting at a pizza restaurant in the Northwest Association Neighborhood.

On Friday, September 24, 2021 at 1:56a.m., Central Precinct officers were dispatched to a report of a shooting in the 500 block of Northwest 21st Avenue. When they arrived they learned three adult males had been shot. One died at the scene, one was transported by ambulance, and the other drove in a private vehicle to a hospital.

The suspect or suspects left before police arrived. Preliminary investigation indicates the suspect or suspects left the area westbound. Detectives are asking that if any residents or businesses have video surveillance in the area of Northwest Glisan Street between Northwest 21st Avenue and Northwest 23rd Avenue to please check their recordings to see they captured any people walking or driving away from the scene at around that time.

If anyone has any video surveillance, or any information about this incident, they're asked to contact Detective Jason Koenig at Jason.Koenig@portlandoregon.gov 503-823-0889 or Detective William Winters at William.Winters@portlandoregon.gov 503-823-0466.

More information will be released as appropriate.
