PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A young man has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of an 18-year-old Portland woman in July, Portland police said.

Kceon Colbert, 19, was arrested Wednesday and is being held in the Clark County jail, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported.

Police said he will face charges related to the death of Shai’India Harris. Harris was shot and killed outside a home in Portland on July 10.

Harris died before medics arrived, police said. It wasn’t immediately known if Colbert has a lawyer to comment on his behalf.

Police did not immediately say how they identified Colbert as a suspect, what information led to his arrest in Clark County, or the circumstances of his arrest. Police have also not provided any information about the circumstances of the shooting, or the relationship between Harris and Colbert.

A Facebook page entitled “Justice for Shai’India,” operated by family and friends, says Harris and Colbert were previously in a relationship.
