Victim was shot in a drive by shooting
The FBI has announced a new $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for the murder of Danae Williams.
A year ago, on May 12, at 8:55 p.m., Danae Williams, 25, was in her car, stopped at a red light at Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Dekum Street when a silver sedan pulled up along the passenger side and someone fired multiple rounds into the vehicle.
Williams was shot and died of her wounds the following day. A passenger in the car was also shot in the head but survived. Investigators believe Williams and her passenger were innocent victims of an ongoing violent dispute between rival gangs.
“Today we announced a $15,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for Danae’s death,” FBI Portland Special Agent in Charge Kieran Ramsey said. “It’s long past time for us to come together as a community and find justice for Danae and the many other victims of violence in Portland.”
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or contacting the FBI at 1 (800) CALL-FBI or at tips.fbi.gov.
