Two people dead, one wounded in Shooting

La PINE, Ore. - Two people were killed and a third seriously wounded in a shooting Wednesday morning at a Sunrver-area home, Deschutes County sheriff's deputies confirmed to NewsChannel 21.

"There is no danger to the public, and investigators believe all parties in this case are accounted for," Lt. Chad Davis said in a news release late Wednesday afternoon.

Deputies, Oregon State Police and Sunriver police, along with tactical response team and armed vehicle, rushed to the scene in the 16000 block of Mountain Sheep Lane, near Elk Drive and north of State Recreation Road, after the incident was reported shortly after 11 a.m., sheriff's Captain Paul Garrison said

They located a wounded man on the side of the road who had been shot. He was flown by AirLink helicopter to St. Charles Bend with life-threatening injuries, said sheriff's Lt. Chad Davis.

Deputies learned another person was inside the home, possibly the suspect, which is when the agency's Special Operations Team was called in.

They entered and found two adults, both deceased, Davis said. Detectives said they believe one of them could be the suspect, according to Garrison.

NewsChannel 21's Pedro Quintana spoke with a woman who said her daughter moved into the home two weeks ago and was inside when the shooting was reported.

Authorities also confirmed that deputies responded to the same home Tuesday night on a domestic disturbance call.

Neighbors said a resident of the home suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Sheriff's office detectives were working at the home with the district attorney's and medical examiner's office and the OSP Forensics Laboratory. Davis said the on-scene investigation is expected to take several hours to complete.
