The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help in solving a shooting at a Downtown Portland bar.

On June 8, 2014, at 1:42 a.m., Central Precinct officers received a call of a possible shooting or stabbing at the East China Lounge, located at 322 Northwest Everett Street.

Officers arrived and learned that the victim, 29-year-old Denson Fleurima, had been shot in the abdomen while inside the bar. The initial scene was very chaotic but officers were able to secure the area and the victim was transported to a Portland hospital with serious but non-life-threatening wounds.

Although the victim is not a gang member, officers learned that several people inside the bar were gang affiliates so the Gang Enforcement Team responded to investigate.

At this point in the investigation, there is no suspect information.

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 tipsters can remain anonymous.

Leave a Crime Stoppers tip online at text CRIMES (274637) and in the subject line put 823HELP, followed by the tip, or call (503) 823-HELP (4357) and leave the tip information.
