Portland Police Bureau Homicide detectives, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, are asking for the public's help in solving a triple shooting and homicide in Northeast Portland.

On November 9, 2013, at 12:45 a.m., North Precinct and Gang Enforcement Team officers responded to the report of a large fight and riot outside the Fontaine Bleau Nightclub, located at 237 Northeast Broadway.

Officers arrived to find a crowd of 75-100 people involved in a disturbance and 30-year-old Durieul Joseph Harris suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Harris died at the scene and officers learned that two other people suffered non-life-threatening gunshot wounds during the disturbance.

Homicide detectives have conducted several interviews related to the shootings but believe that many other people fled the scene without talking to police and may have critical information to help solve this case.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the investigators.

Anyone with second-hand information is asked to share it with police.

Information learned from social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter or YouTube should be shared with investigators as these tips may lead to the identification of a suspect or suspects. Links can be shared directly with investigators or anonymously through Crime Stoppers.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, and you can remain anonymous.
