A suspect sketch was released Thursday in connection with the May shooting death of a man in Gresham.
At 11:23 p.m. on May 11, a caller told a 911 dispatcher shots were fired at 1815 NW 7th Place. Police said there was a marijuana grow operation at the home.
Arriving officers found 25-year-old Erick Carnegie on the street dead. A medical examiner performed an autopsy and determined Carnegie died of gunshot wounds to the head and neck.
A witness told police that while Carnegie was walking to the front door of the home, two people approached him from behind and forced him inside the house. He was shot and killed inside.
Police released descriptions soon afterward of two men who they said were suspects in the case. Thursday they released a composite sketch of “suspect 2.”
Suspect 1: An African American man in his mid-20s, light-skinned, six feet tall, skinny build, wearing a dark hoodie, a bandana covering his face, and black shoes. This suspect was armed with a handgun.
Suspect 2 (sketch shown): An African American man, unknown age, dark-skinned, 5-foot-8, 160 to 170 pounds, goatee, two-inch Afro, wearing a burgundy sweatshirt. This suspect was armed with a Taser.
