Portland Police are asking for the public’s renewed efforts in trying to solve a murder that occurred 10 years ago.

On July 25, 2005, close to 10 p.m., 26-year-old Eyo Nyong, known casually as “Black,” was standing not far from the former L.V. Sports Bar parking lot, which was located in the 3500 block of North Vancouver Avenue.

Witnesses report that two black men approached Nyong and engaged him in conversation, when one of them pulled a gun and fired, shooting the victim in the head and killing him. The suspects ran northbound on Vancouver, and from there the case goes cold.

Nyong was a regular of the bar. He was survived by both of his parents and five of his own young children.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up $1,000 for information that could help this case push forward and lead to an arrest. Tipsters can remain anonymous, and can submit their information by visiting crimestoppersoforegon.com/submit_online_tip.php, texting CRIMES (274637) with the subject line 823HELP, followed by the tip, or calling 503-823- HELP.
