Sheriff's office investigates shooting incident

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in investigating a shooting incident that occurred earlier this month west of Sisters.

DCSO received a report on January 17, at approximately 3:40 p.m., of a vehicle being shot at a long-term camp in the area of USFS road 1510 near the 450 spur, approximately five miles west of Sisters. A green mid-1990s Chevrolet Tahoe had been shot multiple times by an unknown subject near the camp.

The vehicle was in very close proximity to a tent that was being used for housing.

The occupants of the camp called 911 and deputies responded to the area, assisted by a U.S. Forest Service Law Enforcement Officer. Additionally, a USFS Law Enforcement K-9 responded to search the area extensively. DCSO reports that no suspects were located.

Over the past week, deputies have conducted multiple interviews and have searched the area for additional evidence. The investigation is active and ongoing.

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is encouraging the public to contact the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office at 541-693-6911, if they have any further information on this case.
