UPDATE • Police looking for late-1980s Mercedes in connection with attack
A 14-year-old boy wounded Monday afternoon outside the Lloyd Center mall died Wednesday morning.
Police said Shiloh Hampton was seriously wounded in the attack. He died at about 8:20 a.m. An autopsy will determine the cause of death.
Police are looking for a white late-1980s Mercedes sedan in connection with the shooting. The Mercedes was lowered, had tinted windows and chrome rims.
Homicide and gang enforcement detectives are investigating the shooting at Northeast 11th Avenue and Multnomah Street near Holladay Park.
The shooting happened at about 4:56 p.m. outside the shopping center. Witnesses told police that Hampton was with a group of young people inside the Lloyd Center mall. As the group left the shopping center, shots were fired from a passing car, striking the young man in the head and abdomen.
None of the people with Hampton stayed to talk with police.
Investigators believe the shooting involved people associated with gangs. They have not determined if Hampton was involved with gangs or if he was the target of the shooting.
During the investigation, traffic was blocked for several hours from Northeast 13th to Ninth avenues along Multnomah, and 11th Avenue from Multnomah to Holladay streets.
