A Bend couple made up a story about a burglary at their home…to cover up the fact the woman had been shot by her boyfriend. Officers went to a house on Ross Road in northeast Bend around 6 on Saturday morning on the report of a burglary. 44-year-old Anthony Pastran told police someone had knocked on the door and that his girlfriend answered the door. He said that the girlfriend found a gun on the front porch when she opened the door…and that she had been shot in the leg by the gun. 39-year-old Lisa Anne Schnittke was taken to St. Charles Medical Center and was treated for a gunshot that went through her left thigh and then lodged in her right thigh. Further investigation revealed that there was no burglar and no knock on the door…and no gun was found on the porch. Instead…the .22 caliber handgun was already in the house…and Schnittke was shot during a struggle over the gun.
Pastran was arrested for Assault, Possession of Methamphetamine, Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and Reckless Endangering Another Person.
