Portland Police this morning report that Shiloh Hampton, 14, died this morning at an area hospital.
Friends of Shiloh posted a heart-breakingly charming tribute to the teen on YouTube before his death. Watch it here.
At this point in the investigation, investigators believe the shooting involved gang-involved people but have not determined the role gangs played, if any, in the life of Hampton.
Detectives say that Hampton was with a group of friends Monday night at the Lloyd Center Mall as a suspect fired multiple shots into the crowd of his friends near a park on Northeast 11th Avenue and Multnomah Street.
Witnesses say the shots came from a lowered late 1980s white Mercedes with chrome rims and tinted windows.
As Hampton was struck by the shots, the rest of the crowd fled from the area. None of the group that was originally with Hampton remained at the scene to talk with detectives. Police say they consider the people with Hampton to be "potential victims" and want to speak with them.
Anyone with information about the investigation, witnesses to the shooting or information about the persons with Shiloh, or the listed vehicle are asked to contact Detectives Paul Dolbey or Rico Beniga at 503-823-0457.
