HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV) -

One man is in the hospital after he was shot inside his apartment in Hillsboro early Tuesday morning.

Hillsboro police said the shooting took place at the Wyndhaven Apartments at 230 S.W. Edgeway Dr. around 12:15 a.m.

Investigators said the 39-year-old man was found inside an apartment unit with a bullet wound in his right shoulder.

Officials said the man was conscious and able to speak to officers as he was rushed off to the hospital. His injures are not life-threatening.

The shooting suspect is described as a white man in his late 20's, 5 feet 7 inches tall with a thin build . Investigators said the man fled the scene on foot. 

It is unclear if the shooter and victim knew each other and whether the shooter lived in the Wyndhaven Apartments.

Hillsboro police said although the shooting investigation is still on going, they believe it involved a drug deal of some sort. 

More information will be posted as soon as it is available.
