A group of people attending "Open Night Mic” at Strictly Organic Coffee (in the Old Mill) were shocked after a 20 year old man sang a song, then proceeded to stab himself in the chest several times. Kipp Rusty Walker, a transient, had just finished singing and without another word, began stabbing himself.  Bend Police Lieutenant Chris Carney says someone taking such a public venue to harm themselves is very unusual: "You know, 19 years with the Police Department, I can't think of any event similar to this where somebody's done something in such a public forum and for one, not said anything in that process, so at this point, we still don't know the reason why he chose to do this, why he chose this location or anything and we probably never will would be my guess."  Witnesses tried to help him until Bend Fire arrived and took him to St. Charles Medical Center where he died a short time later. Lt. Carney says Walkers’ family lives in Alaska and has been notified of the incident. He adds that the Department does provide counseling services for the wittnesses and anyone involved.
