On Sunday, June 6, 2004, at approximately 5:30 p.m., as a low-rider show was letting out at the Portland Expo Center, police were called to a shooting near North Victory Boulevard and North Expo Road. When they arrived, they found 16-year-old Alexx Alexander, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. He was riding in a car at the time of the shooting.
Alexander was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He died of a gunshot wound to his head.

Detectives want to talk to anyone who saw the argument and can identify people involved, or who has other information about this homicide. They would also like to see pictures and videos people may have from the low-rider show.
