(HILLSBORO, Ore.) - Hillsboro Police were called to a fatal shooting today at the Great Clips Hair Salon, located at 22075 NW Imbrie Drive.
Hillsboro Police Lt. Michael Rouches says officers responded to a report of shots fired today at 4:30 p.m. He says upon arrival, officers discovered a 20-year old female employee of the salon shot dead in a break room area of the shop.
"Further investigation revealed that the victim's boyfriend, a 40-year old male, entered the salon, and had been talking to her in the break room."
Rouches says the couple had been having difficulties in their relationship, had been arguing and the male suspect shot the female with a .357 cal revolver handgun. He then turned the gun on himself and fired one round to his head.
"Upon officers arrival, they discovered the male suspect alive. He was treated at the scene and was transported to Emanuel Hospital via ambulance. He is in critical condition," Rouches said.
The case is being investigated by Hillsboro Police, Hillsboro Police Detectives and the Washington County Major Crimes Team. HPD was assisted in first response by Tri-Met police, Washington County Sheriff's Office, and Hillsboro Fire Dept. The collaboration aided in securing the scene very quickly.
Rouches says the names of the parties involved will not be released until at least Monday, pending notification of relatives.
