MPD investigating murder case

Milwaukie police said Tuesday that a man was killed Monday at an apartment complex at Southeast 22nd Avenue and Bluebird Street.

Police spokesman Greg Elkins added Tuesday that there is no apparent danger to the public, as the victim knew his attacker and was staying with friends who lived at the complex.

Elkins said the victim, 43-year-old Kenneth Scham, died at the scene from what police call “homicidal violence.”

Police detectives with the Clackamas County Major Crimes Task Force have identified a suspect in this case. The identity of the suspect cannot be released at this time.

Officers were called to the area to help paramedics at Monday at 10:44 p.m. The individual was later pronounced dead.
