PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – A man was shot and killed by police Thursday afternoon after he resisted arrest by barricading himself in his Hillsboro home, according to the Beaverton Police Department.
Authorities say Ryan Richard Herinckx, 39, was shot at 1445 SE Duke Drive around 3:17 p.m. after he exited his home with a pistol and fired at police.
Despite lifesaving efforts at the scene of the shooting, police say Herinckx died in a local hospital due to “multiple gunshot wounds.” No officers had been injured.
The Hillsboro Police Department originally responded to the home to arrest Herinckx for crimes related to criminal mischief, stalking, violation of a court’s stalking protective order and third-degree escape.
However, when officers approached Herinckx in the driveway and told him he was under arrest, they say he retreated inside the house and refused to leave.
Hillsboro police requested SWAT assistance and obtained a search warrant to enter Herinckx’s home and arrest him. Officials say a crisis team tried to negotiate with him while the warrant was served.
In the process of serving the warrant, police say Herinckx came outside and shot at officers – which they say led officers to fire back. An investigation is still ongoing.
The officers involved in the shooting were placed on paid administrative leave, according to Beaverton PD.
