PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Police are investigating a deadly shooting in Hillsboro Monday morning.

At around 12:20 a.m. Hillsboro police received reports of shots fired near SE 11th and Walnut.

Responding officers said they found a man about 40-years-old in a nearby parking lot. The man appeared to have died of a gunshot wound, according to officials.

Police said there is no suspect information at this time.

Hillsboro police commander Michael Rouches says officers pay a lot of attention to this area but the department is hoping for a more integrated approach when it comes to tackling crime.

“We are working with 10th Street businesses and city hall and community groups to see what changes we could make to that area that are more than having just cops drive by,” he said.

Walnut Street was shut down between 10th and 12th Avenue for 7 hours but has since reopened.

This is a developing story.
