News Release
Officer Involved Shooting Update: Officers' Names Released - 09/12/23

Hillsboro, Oregon – On behalf of the Washington County Major Crimes Team, the Beaverton Police Department is issuing an update to the official statement regarding an officer involved shooting that occurred in the 1400 block of SE Duke Drive in Hillsboro, Oregon, on September 7, 2023, at approximately 3:17 PM. The shooting resulted in the death of 39-year-old Ryan Richard Herinckx of Hillsboro.

All the involved law enforcement personnel are active members of the Washington County Tactical Negotiations Team (TNT), were on-duty and were deployed in that capacity when the shooting occurred. Below are the names of the law enforcement personnel involved: 

  • Hillsboro Officer Derrik Jarvis 
  • Washington County Deputy Bryan Payton 
  • Washington County Deputy Michael MacKenzie
  • Hillsboro Police Sergeant John Ganci (fired less-lethal munitions)

As a correction to the prior official statement, body-worn camera footage from two of the involved law enforcement personnel confirms that Mr. Herinckx did point his loaded handgun at the deputies and officers.  However, further investigation has shown that Mr. Herinckx did not discharge his firearm, as initially believed.

This is an open and ongoing investigation led by the Washington County Major Crimes Team. In the interest of ensuring the integrity of the investigation and respecting the privacy of those involved, further details will be released as the investigation progresses.
