Two bend residents were walking in an area on the west side of Bend when a man allegedly shot at them, for no apparent reason.

 

Friday morning, around 1:45, a Bend Police Officer heard gunshots in the area of Newport Avenue and NW 13th Street and saw a vehicle leaving the area.

 

He chased the car for about two blocks when the driver, Stephen Mitchell, 32, of Bend left the moving car and ran.  The car hit a fire hydrant.

 

Evidence at the scene indicated Mitchell did shoot in at the pedestrians with a shotgun and one was struck in the neck by debris. The victims, Christian Liliedahl-Allen, 27 and Robert Schoepfle, 25, did not know the suspect.

 

A search with a K-9 was done, but Mitchell was not found.

 

Further investigation reveals that Mitchell has recently made statements about shooting random people.

 

Around 5 p.m. Mitchell waived down a motorist near Dillon Falls and said he wanted to turned himself in.

 

The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Department, Oregon State Police and Bend Police located Mitchell and took him into custody without incident.

 

He is lodged in the Deschutes County Jail, charged with attempted murder, Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Menacing.
