The Clackamas County Sheriffs Office has a pretty high profile case on their hands, after Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillards half-brother was shot multiple times in a parking lot on Thursday.
Local Oregon news station Fox 12 reports that Jahrell Lillard was rushed into surgery on Thursday night after being shot in a mall parking lot in Happy Valley. Authorities say two African American men shot Lillard as he was getting into his car. Witnesses report hearing somewhere between 5-10 shots before the two men fled the scene.

Lillard reportedly limped into a Macys department store where he later collapsed and was rushed to the hospital. His condition is not yet known. The two shooting suspects have not been identified and police are still actively seeking tips on the situation. They believe Lillard was specifically targeted but details of the case are still vague.
