PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The first 2 homicides of 2022 in Portland were an uncle and his nephew shot to death less than 2 hours after the new year began.

Andre Lashun Foster, 43, and Quayan Johnell Foster, 21, were publicly identified by Portland police late Monday afternoon. The autopsy ruled their deaths to be homicide by gunshot.

An earlier release by Portland police identified them as father and son. PPB officials later corrected the relationship to uncle and nephew.

The shooting happened around 1:45 a.m. at Northeast 131st Place. When police arrived, one of the men had already died. The other died at the hospital. A third person was shot and wounded but is expected to survive.
