Portland State University will remember the life of a student-athlete who was killed last week.

Deante Strickland died in a shooting in North Portland on Friday. His sister, Tamena Strickland, was arrested for his death, and is accused of wounding two other relatives in the shooting.

There's still no word from investigators on what led up to the gunfire.

A celebration of life for Deante is set for Wednesday August 14.

It starts at 1 p.m. at the Viking Pavilion on the PSU Campus. The public is welcome to attend.
