Detectives Seek Witnesses in Homicide Investigation

April 17, 2008 00:00


On Wednesday, April 16, 2008, at 8:22 pm, East Precinct officers were called to the Hazelwood Station apartment complex located in the 14700 block of East Burnside on a shots fired call. Officers arrived and found the body of 22-year-old Christopher John Tillman in a hallway on the third floor of the apartment complex. The victim appeared to have been shot at least one time and was deceased when officers arrived. Homicide Detectives were called to the scene to initiate an investigation.

An autopsy conducted by the Multnomah County Medical Examiner concluded that Tillman died of a single gunshot wound. For investigative reasons detectives are withholding more specific information about the shooting. Investigators have not developed any suspect information and are currently seeking anyone who may know the victim or had contact with the victim in the hours leading to his death.

Anyone with information is asked to call Steve Ober at (503) 823-4033 or Detective Jim McCausland at (503) 823 0449.

This investigation is continuing.
