Police identify man shot and killed during argument in Aloha

ALOHA, Ore. – Police have identified the man who was killed in a shooting Tuesday night, and while investigators know who the shooter is, they haven't arrested him.

Police said 24-year-old Forest Alig was killed in the street during an argument with another man in the 18000 block of Southwest Rosa.

According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, the shooter is being cooperative but deputies won't say why he's not in custody and they won't release his name.

Investigators said they're trying to determine if Alig was armed. Alig's father told KATU News that he doesn't know much about what happened either – just that his son is dead.

Investigators say the 41-year-old shooter lives in the Aloha neighborhood where he fired at least one gunshot, killing Alig.

They say the two were strangers and got into an argument but why Alig was there or what they argued about is still unclear.

One person who lives near the shooting said deputies told her it was the shooter who called 911. Investigators have not confirmed that detail but said they are confident about who fired the shot that killed Alig.
