The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Portland Field Office, in collaboration with the Portland Police Bureau, is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the individual(s) responsible for the shooting deaths of three young individuals: 17-year-old Eskender Tamra, 19-year-old Babu Daudi, and 20-year-old Patrick Johnson.
The incident occurred on Saturday, March 25, 2023, at approximately 12:30 pm when Tamra, Daudi, and Johnson were shot and killed while traveling in a car on Foss Avenue near University Park in North Portland. Preliminary investigations suggest that three assailants fired multiple gunshots at the victims’ vehicle, resulting in the deaths of all three occupants.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the individual(s) responsible for these heinous murders.
Kieran L. Ramsey, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Portland Field Office, expressed concern about the incident, stating, “Even as the victims tried to drive away, the suspects chased them and continued shooting in broad daylight. From inside their homes, neighbors heard dozens of gunshots ring out and found shell casings in their yards. We know there are people out there who know who did this. The shooters brought terror to this neighborhood and ripped apart three families. For this community and these families, we are asking for the public to come forward with any information.”
Authorities are urging anyone with relevant information to contact the FBI Portland Field Office at (503) 224-4181. Alternatively, individuals can reach out to their local FBI office, the nearest American Embassy or Consulate, or submit a tip online at tips.fbi.gov.
