BEND, Ore. -

Bend police released a photo and turned to the public for help Friday in identifying a man who allegedly fired a gunshot near a southeast Bend pub on Tuesday during an argument with a passing motorist.

Officers were dispatched around 5:25 p.m. Tuesday to a reported weapons offense at the Third Street Pub, at 314 SE Third Street, said Sgt. Nick Parker.

The initial report said a man had fired a gun at someone in the pub’s parking lot, then ran before police were called, Parker said.
