PRINEVILLE, OR -- The Crook County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting that occurred near the Juniper Acres subdivision, Tuesday afternoon.


Few details have been released, but the agency says deputies responded to the area just after 2:30 p.m. First responders provided aid to a juvenile who received a non-life threatening gunshot wound. The victim was later air lifted to St. Charles Bend. 


The investigation is ongoing and the Sheriff's Office says more details will be released as they become available. 


UPDATE: The Crook County Sheriff’s Office now says a girl shot Tuesday near the Juniper Acres subdivision was not the victim of a crime. Initial reports indicated she was shot by an unknown assailant. But, investigators later learned the victim had taken a firearm from her home and accidentally shot herself while trying to manipulate the gun. 


The Sheriff's Office has recovered the gun and shell casing involved in the incident, and say the case is closed.
