The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help in solving a 2011 homicide in Southeast Portland.

On Wednesday July 20, 2011, at 10:20 p.m., Portland Police officers from East Precinct responded to the report of shots fired in the area of the Southeast 135th Avenue and Sherman Street. Officers arrived in the area and found 18-year-old Larry Ma suffering from a gunshot wound. Medical personnel responded and transported Mr. Ma to an area hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Officers searched the neighborhood for possible suspects but did not locate anyone. Homicide Detectives and Criminalists from the Forensic Evidence Division responded and began an investigation into the shooting.
