Homicide and Gang Enforcement Team detectives are continuing to investigate two separate shooting incidents that occurred early Friday morning in Southeast Portland.

This morning's homicide victim has been identified as 24-year-old female Precious Antanaye Jackson. The Oregon State Medical Examiner will be conducting an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.

Homicide detectives are asking for the public's help to recover any discarded clothing, particularly jackets or hoodys, in the area of Gilbert Heights City Park. The park is located at Southeast 127th Avenue and Boise Street and is where the vehicle that eluded officers crashed. Three to four African American males fled from the car into the neighborhood.

The gunshot victim that arrived at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center has been identified as 23-year-old Jeray Lashawn Jessie, a known gang associate. Jessie was suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. Jessie was not cooperative with Gang Enforcement Team detectives but it is believed that he may have been involved in the shooting on the I-205 southbound off-ramp at Southeast Division Street. There is no suspect information to share on this shooting.

Homicide and Gang detectives do not believe that the two shootings are related.

The patient that arrived at Portland Adventist Medical Center with a gunshot wound is also not related to any of the incidents and may be a self-inflicted injury.

Anyone with information on the homicide is asked to contact Detective Kristina Coffey at (503) 823-0696, kristina.coffey@portlandoregon.gov; or, Detective Chris Traynor at (503) 823-0449, christopher.traynor@portlandoregon.gov

Anyone with information about the I-205 and Division shooting is asked to contact Detective Brad Clifton at (503) 823-2087, brad.clifton@portlandoregon.gov.
