BEND, OR -- Two men face Robbery and other charges in connection with the Tuesday shooting at the Rodeway Inn, in southeast Bend.


According to Bend Police, Justin Perkins (left) of Bend and Steven Premo (below) of California contacted two men staying at the motel. The suspects displayed a firearm and an electronic stun gun, and demanded property. During the altercation, the gun went off, although no one was hurt.


Investigators believe another fight started as Premo and Perkins left the motel in a car. This time, Premo was stabbed multiple times and another man was shot in the leg. That victim was taken to the hospital with his non-life threatening gunshot wound.


Several hours later, officers saw Premo and Perkins get into a cab; the two were taken into custody during a high-risk traffic stop near NE Neff and Purcell. Premo was then taken to the hospital and Perkins was lodged at the jail on a number of charges. On Friday, Premo was released from the hospital and arrested, as well.


Investigators are still unclear on the relationship between the four people involved in the incident.
