The family of shooting victims Andrew Pham, Susie Pham (Sut-Leng Chang), and Gary Pham (Dat Pham) have offered the following statement regarding the shooting deaths of Susie and Gary, and the critical injuries suffered by Andrew:
"We would like to thank everyone for their sympathy and prayers. We ask that you pray for the third victim of this crime who is still fighting for life.

The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help to solve this crime in Southeast Portland's Montavilla Neighborhood.
On April 10, 2015 at 10:02 p.m., East Precinct officers responded to a residence on Southeast 85th Avenue, just North of Southeast Division Street on the report of a shooting.
Several officers arrived at the location and located three gunshot victims inside a residence. Two adult victims, 33-year-old Gary Dat Pham and 41-year-old Susie Pham (Sut-Leng Chang) were deceased. A third victim, 35-year-old Andrew Toan Pham, was transported to a Portland hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Officers located a 13-week-old baby girl in the residence and were able to take the child to safety. The infant was not harmed in the shooting and was placed in the care of her grandparents (not the Department of Human Services as previously released).
Andrew Pham remains in a Portland hospital in critical condition.
The Oregon State Medical Examiner conducted autopsies on Sunday April 12 and determined that Gary Pham and Susie Pham died of gunshot wounds to the head.
Andrew Pham and Gary Pham, are brothers. The baby girl removed from the home is the child of Andrew and Susie Pham.
At this point in the investigation, the only suspect information is an unknown race male.
Detectives have learned that all three victims were involved in the medical marijuana industry but it has not been determined if this played a role in the shootings.
Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, and tipsters can remain anonymous.
