A person was found fatally shot Saturday morning inside the Oregon Culinary Institute in Goose Hollow. According to Portland Police Bureau's preliminary report, officers responded a call reporting the shooting around 8:30 am. Officers haven't located a suspect and have no description of what the suspect may look like.

Update 6/3, 11:45 am: PPB has identified the victim in what they've now labeled a homicide as 63-year-old Daniel Brophy, OCI's lead chef instructor. According to OCI's website, Brophy had been teaching at the institute since 2006, and was one of the faculty members most active in the community. He was also "an expert in marine biology, a master gardener, and a mushroom expert." (Here's a video that proves that last one). A collection of candles, flowers, and cards has begun to grow in front of OCI's main building to memorialize Brophy. On Monday, June 4, OCI will host a 7 pm candlelight vigil for Brophy.

Former students and colleagues have also been sharing their memories of Brophy on OCI's Facebook wall.

Here's a video taken in 2010 of Brophy explaining his life's work:
