PORTLAND, Ore. — Two men were shot and killed over New Years weekend.
21-year-old Quayan Johnell Foster and his uncle, Andre Lashun Foster, 43, died from gunshot wounds at Northeast 131st Place and Prescott Drive just before 2:00am on New Years Day. A third person who was wounded survived.
The initial 911 caller waited close to 8 minutes to get through as police were incredibly busy on New Years Eve into New Years Day.
On Sunday morning, 39-year-old Isaiah Dewayne Hurst was found dead on North Morgan Street near Moore Avenue.
These are the first three killings of 2022 in the city following a record 90 homicides last year.
