Jury Finds Nathan Wayne Moore Guilty for 2018 Murder of Dominique Scott Eivers in Southeast Portland

August 18, 2023

Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt today announced that a Multnomah County jury delivered a guilty verdict for Nathan Wayne Moore, 43, for the fatal shooting of Dominique Scott Eivers, 41, in November 2018.

The investigation into this case started when, on November 19, 2018, officers with the Portland Police Bureau received information about shots fired in the 13000 block of Southeast Powell Boulevard. Officers arrived and began speaking with several people. While conducting their initial investigation, officers located blood on the ground.

Law enforcement later learned that a male subject, identified as Mr. Eivers, had been dropped off at a local hospital by private vehicle. Mr. Eivers died as a result of a gunshot injury, according to the Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office. Moore was identified as the suspect and taken into custody on November 19 at a residence located within the crime scene. A grand jury indicted Moore on November 29, 2018.

The trial took place in front of Judge Michael Greenlick from August 7-16, 2023, with Deputy District Attorneys Sean Hughey and Leslie Wu as prosecutors. The 12-person jury delivered the verdict on August 16, finding Moore guilty of three charges:

  • Murder in the Second Degree with a Firearm
  • Unlawful Use of a Weapon with a Firearm
  • Felon in Possession of a Firearm with a Firearm

Moore is currently in custody at the Multnomah County Detention Center and is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Greenlick on September 21.

The DA’s Office thanks the PPB officers and detectives who worked this case.
