Earlier this week, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a gunshot wound on NW Skyliners Road near Forest Service Road 4606. The Sheriff’s Office located a 17 year old male with non-life threatening injuries from the gunshot wound. He was transported to St. Charles Medical Center by Bend Fire.
Officers from the Bend Police Department and the Oregon State Police also responded to the area to assist. During the course of the investigation, it was learned the shooting occurred at a rave party off of the 4606 road. By the time Deputies arrived in the area of the party, most people had fled. Those still on scene advised there had been a fight between two males, one of whom had a gun. During the fight the gun went off striking the 17 year old male.
Detectives from the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office processed the scene, and made contact with the male victim at the hospital. While at the hospital a second injured victim arrived at the hospital with minor injuries from the fight. This victim had wrestled the gun from the suspect and turned it over to detectives. He was treated and released from the scene.
On 09/08/2022, the suspect was located and taken into custody without incident. A search warrant was executed at his residence in the 61000 block of Sally Lane in Bend.
The suspect was lodged at the juvenile detention center on the above listed charges. No additional information was released by authorities at this time.
