The Portland Police Bureau, in partnership with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help to solve the February 2021 homicides of William Peters and Adam David-Lawrence Arrambide.

On Friday, February 27, 2021 at 11:28 p.m., Portland Police Bureau officers responded to a report of two people shot at a bar in the 8300 block of Southeast McLoughlin Boulevard. When officers arrived, they found two people suffering from gunshot wounds. Medical personnel responded to treat the victims, one of whom died at the scene. The second victim was transported by ambulance to a Portland area hospital but succumbed to injuries the next day.

The victims were identified as 39-year-old Williams “Billy” Peters, of Portland, Oregon, and 36-year-old Adam David-Lawrence Arrambide, of La Pine, Oregon. Mr. Peters died at the scene while Mr. Arrambide died at the hospital.

The Medical Examiner determined that both died as a result of a gunshot wound and ruled their deaths as homicide.

Adam Arrambide’s family learned that Adam received over 200 units of blood during a five-hour surgery as medical staff attempted to save his life. Adam’s mother has asked that anyone that knew Adam or anyone wanting to make a difference to please donate blood in honor of Adam.
