PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — “He was the nicest guy. He didn’t deserve this.”
That’s what Jerry Rosen said 2 days after his 30-year-old son, Barak Rosen, was found shot to death on the track at the temporary Grant High School site.
June 17, 2018 was a Sunday. Portland police found Rosen dead around 4:40 a.m. He’d been shot multiple times.
An investigation turned up no real clues, no suspects and no reason why Rosen would have been shot to death.
Barak Rosen moved from Southern California to Portland in December 2017 “for a new opportunity,” his family during a press conference after his death.
“He’s the kind of individual that any parent would be proud to have their kids, son or daughter be friends with,” his father said that day. “He was a good guy and he didn’t deserve this.”
