PMG SCREENSHOT: GOOGLE MAPS - Clackamas County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a homicide reported on Chestnut Street near Park Road. A man was shot dead in an unincorporated part of Clackamas County near Milwaukie, authorities say.

Clackamas County Sheriff's deputies responded to a report of a "suspicious death" in a home on Southeast Chestnut Street near Park Road around 4:25 p.m. Monday, July 12, according to official reports.

Following an autopsy, officials identified the man killed as 41-year-old Matthew Warren Trollope. The cause of death is listed as a gunshot wound.

A resident of the Portland area since at least the 1990s, Trollope had experienced homelessness in recent years before moving into a flat in the Milwaukie Heights area not far from where he was found dead, records show.

Detectives with the county Major Crimes Team are treating the case as a homicide.
