BEND, OR — Bend Police say a report of a shooting near downtown, Saturday morning, was unfounded. Officers responded to the Yellow Knife office on NW Greenwood Ave., just after 7:30 a.m., following a call to 911 from a man claiming to have shot a woman. He also said he was prepared to shoot police.
Bend PD, Public Works, the Sheriff’s Office, ODOT and the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team responded, blocking off the area while officers investigated. The business was cleared by a team of officers and officials say they didn’t find anyone inside or around the building. Roads in the area reopened at 9:20 a.m.
At this point, they believe there is no credible threat to the community. The investigation is ongoing, and Bend Police ask anyone with information to call 541-693-6911.
