A Lebanon man who was expecting his first child in a month or two was fatally shot in Portland on New Year’s Eve.

The Portland Police Bureau reported that the North Precinct responded to a shooting call in the 1100 block of Northeast Faloma Road on Sunday, Dec. 31, at 8:09 p.m. Police initially found two men who were taken to the hospital for wounds.

They later identified Skyler Stuckey, 21, as a victim of the incident in the East Columbia neighborhood who died shortly after arriving at the hospital. The medical examiner determined Stuckey died of homicide by gunshot wounds. The other victim, an unidentified 18-year-old male, suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries. He has since been released.

A witness, Jack Durrett, said he heard gunshots just outside his house while watching a football game. When he went outside to investigate, he found Stuckey in a car and saw the unidentified male run into his yard. Durrett said he’s lived in the neighborhood for 33 years and nothing like this has ever happened there. He’s found bullet holes in his cars, boat and house.
