FBI Offers Up to $15,000 for Information in Shooting of Dhulfiqar Mseer

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $15,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the murder of Dhulfiqar Kareem Mseer. This is in addition to the previously offered reward of up to $2,500 from Crime Stoppers of Oregon.

On December 11, 2020, Mr. Mseer, age 23, was working as an Uber driver. Shortly before midnight, he arrived in the area of NE Stafford Street and NE 11th Avenue in Portland to pick up a fare. He was shot by multiple subjects who fired approximately 70 rounds. He died several days later. The subjects got into two cars before leaving the area. One of the cars is believed to be a VW Eos. Shell casings recovered at the scene have been matched to casings found at other gang-involved shootings in the area. “Day after day we see a rising tide of indiscriminate violence—much of it against innocent people just trying to go to work and come back home to their families safely.

People in our community should be able to live their lives free of the fear of bullets and bloodshed. Mr. Mseer’s family should be able to go forward knowing that his shooters won’t go on to harm others. If you have information in this case, now is the time to be brave and come forward. You can help bring closure to a grieving family and, likely, stop more shootings from taking place,” said Kieran L. Ramsey, special agent in charge of the FBI in Oregon. Mr. Mseer’s FBI “Seeking Information” poster can be downloaded at https://www.fbi.gov/wanted/seeking-info/dhulfiqar-kareem-mseer.

This reward is the third offered by the FBI on behalf of the Metro Safe Streets Task Force. Previous rewards include:

  • Up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for a mass shooting that claimed the life of Makayla Harris and injured six others
  • Up to $15,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the shooting death of Evelin Navarro-Barajas

If anyone has information, witnessed any part of what happened, or has video of anything that happened prior to, during, or after these shootings, they are asked to contact PPB by emailing crimetips@portlandoregon.gov or to contact the FBI at 1 (800) CALL-FBI or at tips.fbi.gov.

The Metro Safe Streets Task Force includes a partnership between the FBI and ATF, Portland Police Bureau, Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, Gresham Police Department, U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Oregon, and the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office.
