COURTESY PHOTO: CITY OF TIGARD - Two men were found dead early Friday morning at the Tigard Embassy SuitesTigard police are investigating as a homicide the deaths of two men whose bodies were found early Friday morning, May 6, at a Tigard hotel.

Both Tigard police and law enforcement officers responded to a call at 1:30 a.m. regarding a disturbance at Embassy Suites, 9000 S.W. Washington Square Road.

Once there, witnesses reported hearing possible gunshots. After searching the building, police found two men dead, according to a news release.

Detectives are working to identify a suspect, whom they believe left the scene.

"Although everyone connected with this incident who has been identified to this point in the investigation is from Portland, we have not been able to connect this incident to a separate overnight shooting at a hotel in Portland," according to the release.

That incident involved a shooting near the Marriott Hotel on South River Parkway and Moody Avenue where Portland police found a man deceased in a vehicle, according to KOIN 6 News.

Investigators don't believe there's an ongoing threat to the public regarding the Embassy Suites homicides.

The victims won't be identified until next of kin have been notified, police said.

The Washington County Major Crimes Team is taking the lead in this investigation.
