PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Investigators are continuing to look into the killing of a 25-year-old man who suffered a "very violent death," according to police.

Police said Charles Weber died from blunt force trauma to the head at a home in southwest Portland. Officers arrived at the home on the 2220 block of Southwest Dolph Court shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday after a neighbor called police to report a disturbance and assault.

Officers who found Weber's body could immediately tell he was the victim of a homicide, said Portland police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson. He said detectives from Oregon State Police were also investigating the crime scene.

"This was a very violent death," said Simpson. "Without getting into details, bringing OSP out helps us to process the manner of violence in which this occurred."

Police said there were no witnesses to what happened. No suspects are in custody, and there was no suspect information available.

"It's just really a shock. You have someone, a neighbor, murdered right next to you," said neighbor Lee Orr. "It really is quiet."

Homicide detectives are still seeking suspect information and would like to hear from anyone with information about the incident.

Anyone with information should contact Detective Kristina Coffey @ (503) 823-0696 or Kristina.Coffey@PortlandOregon.gov.
