Investigators learned that Shiloh was at the Lloyd Center Mall earlier in the day with a group of friends. The group made their way to the southeast corner of Northeast 11th Avenue and Northeast Multnomah at about 5:00 p.m. last evening when someone fired numerous rounds at the entire group. Shiloh was struck by the gun fire while the rest of the group fled from the area. Shiloh remains in critical condition with life threatening injuries.
