Arrest Made In Fatal Shooting At Hillsboro Bar

Hillsboro, Ore. — The Hillsboro Police Department has made an arrest in connection to the fatal shooting of 42-year-old Isaura Soto Gaona, who was killed inside a Hillsboro bar early Sunday morning.

On Wednesday morning, police arrested Sain Delgado Venegas, 23, of Cornelius, Oregon. Venegas has been charged with second-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, and felon in possession of a firearm, according to Hillsboro police.

The shooting occurred on Sunday around 12:45 a.m. at the Kim Red Rose bar on Southwest Oak Street near Tualatin Valley Highway in Hillsboro. Officers responded to reports of a shooting and found Gaona with a gunshot wound. It was initially reported that someone shot Gaona and drove off. However, officers believe that one person from a group of four who were asked to leave the establishment was responsible for the shooting, due to evidence left behind. Additional shots were also fired outside the bar.

Gaona’s killing marks the second homicide in Hillsboro this year. The Hillsboro Police Department is encouraging anyone with information related to this case to contact them immediately.
