PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - A person was found dead at a home in the Linnton neighborhood Saturday morning.

Officers responded to a report of a person found unconscious at a house in the 9900 Block of Northwest Hoge Avenue.

Officers and medical personnel responded and determined that the person was dead.

"It's pretty wild, it really is, I couldn’t imagine that actually happening here," neighbor Aeython Raabon said.

Based on the circumstances, the homicide detail is responding to conduct an investigation.

"I mean I sat on the porch for a few minutes just being like wow this is crazy you feel the weight of it," Raabon said. "Plus our neighbors have known the dude for a while and they’re all just kind of shocked some of my neighbors have lived here for thirty years and never experienced anything like this."

Northwest Hoge Avenue at Northwest Saint Helens Road is blocked off during the investigation.

Linnton neighborhood is located between Forest Park and the Willamette River along U.S. Route 30.
