Iraqi refugee fatally shot in Portland picking up Uber fare

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A 23-year-old Iraqi refugee was fatally shot in Portland, Oregon, while picking up an Uber fare in what authorities believe was a gang-related ambush gone wrong. The Oregonian/OregonLive reported Friday that Dhulfiqur Kareem Mseer was shot just after midnight on Saturday and had been on life support since the shooting. Police have said nearly 60 rounds were fired by multiple people at Mseer’s car in what they believe was a case of mistaken identity. Mseer moved to Portland in 2015 and had recently visited Iraq to get married. He was completing paperwork to bring his spouse to the U.S.
