Paul Krekeler

PORTLAND — A teen who was shot in the Woodstock neighborhood late Tuesday night ran down the street before collapsing in the yard of a home.  Police found Paul Krekeler, 19, dead at Southeast 57th and Harold.  He was shot in the chest.

Witnesses saw a white SUV or truck leave the scene, but police are not sure if the people inside had anything to do with it.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward to find Krekeler’s killer.

It’s the sixteenth murder of the year in the city.

This was the second shooting in ninety minutes.  Another man was shot several times at a home near Southeast 49th and Powell around 9:00.  He made it to the hospital and talked with investigators.  The shooter is said to be a white man, about 5’10” with a thin build wearing dark clothing and sunglasses.
