PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A man is facing first- and second-degree murder charges in connection to a decades-old cold case in Portland.
Jawuan Polk is accused of shooting and killing Leonard Irving in Northeast Portland in June 2011.
Irving, who went by LJ, was a father of three young children. His mother spoke to KOIN 6 in 2021 and said he “loved [his] family. He was so excited about being a father to his kids.”
Polk is currently in jail for an unrelated case.
