Woman Shoots and Kills Estranged Husband During Argument

Washington Co. Sheriff's Office

On Monday, September 23, 2019, at approximately 1:11 p.m., Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a 9-1-1 call where a woman called to report she had shot her husband.  Sheriff’s deputies quickly arrived at the 20-acre farm property in the 16800 block of NW Germantown Road.  This is in the Bethany area of unincorporated Washington County.  Deputies and personnel from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue performed life-saving measures on the man, but he died at the scene.

The initial investigation indicates there was an argument of some kind between a man and a woman that ultimately ended in gunfire. There is no danger to the public.

Investigators obtained and executed multiple search warrants.  Members of the Forensics Unit worked late into the night processing the crime scene and collecting evidence.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact detectives at 503-846-2700.
