A La Pine man is shot during an ongoing argument on Golden Astor Road Friday afternoon. 

 

Lt. Scott Beard with the Deschutes County Sheriffs Office says around 2:00p.m., a family member reported David Morehouse, 60 allegedly shot Charles Williams, 43, in the chest multiple times. 

 

Apparently, the men had an ongoing feud that got out of hand.  La Pine Fire Medics treated Williams at the scene before he was taken to St. Charles Bend by an AirLink helicopter where he remains in critical condition. 

 

The gun was secured, no longer with the suspect, who reportedly remained outside the home and taken into custody without incident. 

 

Morehouse is lodged in the Deschutes County Jail on several charges including attempted murder;  his bail is set at $355,000.
