The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help to solve a homicide that occurred 13 years ago.
On July 27, 2005, at approximately 9:50 p.m., 26-year-old Eyo Nyong, who was also known as "Black," was standing near the parking lot of the former J.D. Sports bar which was located in the 3500 block of North Vancouver Avenue.
Witnesses told the police that Mr. Nyong was approached by two black males and became engaged in a conversation with them.
As Mr. Nyong was talking with the two males, one of them pulled a gun and fired. Mr. Nyong was shot in the head, fell to the ground and died. The suspects ran northbound on North Vancouver Avenue.
Mr. Nyong often frequented the bar at the time. He left behind his mother, father, and five small children.
