The Portland Police Bureau is seeking the public's help to locate 18-year-old Kceon Colbert who is wanted for the murder of Shai-India Harris. Colbert is described as 5'08" tall and 150 pounds.

This homicide occurred on the afternoon of July 10th, 2020, in public in the 7400 block of 84th Avenue.

PPB would prefer for Mr. Colbert to safely turn himself in, but if anyone sees him we ask for you to immediately call 911.

"Now is the time for all of us to come together to send a clear message to those engaged in gun violence that is taking lives and leaving scars of trauma city-wide that we will not allow them to define our City or become the new normal," said Chief Chuck Lovell. "Help us to locate the perpetrators, provide tips and information and find other options for those who may be at risk of becoming the next shooter or victim. Together, we can stop this scourge, but first we need to work as one in memory of the too many lives lost for a safer tomorrow."
