Gresham Police Make Multiple Arrests in Execution Style Homicide from September

Dec. 15, 2021 – The East County Major Crimes Team has arrested multiple suspects in connection to the murder of Andrew Sherrell.  

On Sep. 24, 2021, Gresham police officers responded to a 911 call of a deceased person located at the 18900 block of NE Portal Way, an industrial area of NW Gresham. Officers found a man face down, with arms bound and a single gunshot wound to his head. The victim was later identified as 35-year-old Andrew Sherrell of Bend, Ore. 

Since the murder, detectives from the East County Major Crimes Team, represented by the Gresham Police Department, Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, Port of Portland Police Department, the Oregon State Police and the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office, have spent hundreds of investigative hours piecing together the circumstances around Andrew’s murder.  

Detectives learned Andrew Sherrell was someone involved in selling illegal drugs, spending time between Central Oregon and the Portland Metro area. The investigation found he was the target of a kidnapping and execution-style murder because of a drug debt, with multiple suspects conspiring to commit the felonious acts. He was bound at the hands, assaulted, and driven from downtown Portland to the location of the eventual homicide scene in Gresham, where he was killed and left on the side of the road.
