KOIN, Oregon — Police said the man shot dead at a pizzeria in Northwest Portland early Friday was likely not the intended target of the shooting.

“I don’t think this was a random act that someone passed by and started shooting,” Sgt said. Kevin Allen told KOIN 6 News on Friday.

Jacob Knight-Basquez was hit by a bullet when the shooter started shooting from the front door of Northwest 21st and Grisan’s Silver Dollar Pizza At Nobu Hill around 2am on Friday. Owner Sam Macbale told KOIN 6 News that there weren’t any shooters left in the crowd, nor were they customers.

Knight-Vasquez was 34 years old.

Investigators said they believed the shooter fired from the outside at a popular sports bar, killing Nightbasquez and injuring two other men. Police then said the suspect had fled northwest on Grisan Road to the west.

One of the injured men was taken to a local hospital by ambulance, and a third was taken to the hospital by private car.

“There was no conflict or debate in the place,” Macbale said. “It was completely blue. A man passed by and was actually shooting through this door.”

This is the 48th death from gun violence in Portland in 2021 and accounts for most of the 64 murders in the city.

Investigators check surveillance footage with businesses and residents in the area to see if anyone has footage of someone walking or driving in the area around 2 am on Friday. I am asking.
