Crime Stoppers for week of 09-05-05

September 06, 2005 00:00


Crime Stoppers, in conjunction with the Portland Police Bureau, needs your help identifying and finding the suspects in a homicide.

On Wednesday, June 22, 2005, at 7:54 p.m., Portland Police responded to a “shots fired” call in the 8700 block of Southeast Division Street. Officers arrived and discovered the body of 28-year-old Chauntee Lamont Johnson in the parking lot of the Sun’s Market.

The Multnomah County Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy and determined that Johnson died from a gunshot wound or wounds. For investigative reasons detectives are withholding the exact number and specific placement of the wound(s).

The victim was seen standing outside a vehicle talking to the occupants when he was shot. The suspect vehicle with a partial Oregon plate of 575--- is described as a 91 blue Ford Escort with a spoiler on the trunk, low profile tires, and custom wheels. The suspects are two African American males; no further description is available at this time. The vehicle fled Southbound on SE 87th Avenue immediately after the shooting.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, and you may remain anonymous. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357).
