PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Police have identified the man who was shot multiple times and killed in southeast Portland on Sunday night.

Police responded to a home on the 6900 block of Southeast 110th Avenue at 5:06 p.m. on a report of an unconscious man suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

Gary Jay Baechler, 48, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Based on preliminary observations, homicide detectives and criminalists from the Forensic Evidence Division responded to the scene to conduct a death investigation

The victim was identified Monday by police. The medical examiner conducted an autopsy and determined Baechler died of multiple gunshot wounds.

His death is being investigated as a homicide. There is no suspect information at this time, according to police.

A possible motive was not released by investigators.

Neighbors said Baechler lived with two other men, who mostly kept to themselves. One women said she thought she heard gunshots on the night of the shooting. 

Other neighbors said they were shocked to find so much police activity in their area. 

"It sucks that somebody around the neighborhood had to die like that. It really does,"said neighbor Shandra Smith. 

Detectives released a 2014 Oregon driver's license photo of Baechler in hopes it will assist in the investigation.
