PORTLAND, Ore. -- Police say they don't know much about how or why a 29-year-old opera singer and church choir director was shot multiple times in a car along a Portland, Ore., interstate.

It was unclear if Tierney was pulled over when he was shot, but police say they don't think he was the victim of a sniper. They also don't suspect the shooting was a gang- or drug-related.

The man's father, Donald Tierney, says his son was "innocently going home" from his work as a choir director for a church.

Relatives say Tierney was unarmed. They also say he is married and has a young daughter.

The Oregonian reports Tierney has performed with the Portland Opera.
