The FBI is offering a reward of up to $15,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of those responsible for the death of Evelin Navarro-Barajas.
On June 18, 2020, 23-year-old Evelin Navarro-Barajas spent the afternoon at the river. That evening, Evelin and a group of friends, that included children, gathered in a parking lot in the 6700 block of Northeast Killingsworth Street in Portland, Oregon. Just before midnight, a vehicle stopped on the street near the parking lot. A suspect or suspects exited the vehicle and fired multiple shots at the group. Evelin was shot and died early in the morning of June 19, 2020. A friend was shot and survived.
Evidence suggests this was a gang-motivated shooting, however, there is no indication that Evelin and/or her friends were gang-affiliated.
