Neighbors heard gunshots and saw 3 men with hooded sweatshirts running south on 128th Avenue across E Burnside Street around 12:40 p.m. on April 15.

Larry Edwin Van Dolah Jr., 38, of St. Helens was found dead when police and paramedics arrived.

“He’s got family he’s got kids,” Van Dola’s mother, June Amick Jr. Degrande said. “We just don’t understand… we are never going to see the brother, the son, the dad, it’s done, it’s taken from us.”

The 3 men appeared to be 16-20 years old. Two of them were wearing blue jeans and one was wearing dark pants.

The men were captured on surveillance images and a witness provided enough details for a forensic artist to draw a sketch.

If you recognize the men, you can submit a tip by texting CRIMES (274637) – Type 823HELP, followed by the tip. You can also submit a tip online.
