PORTLAND, OR -- A Warm Springs woman was sentenced Tuesday to 13 years in federal prison for shooting two family members in March 2016. According to court documents, 26-year-old Rhyan Smith returned to a house she’d periodically lived in with five family members, retrieved a pistol she’d taken without permission from the owner, then stood in a bedroom doorway and shot a relative five times. A second victim was shot several times when she heard the gunshots and tried to stop Smith.
Woman To Be Charged With Double Shooting
Police found Smith hiding near the house with an AR-15 rifle; investigators later found a camouflage rifle bag with multiple AR-15 magazines, loose ammunition and a 9mm pistol in a vehicle at the house. She pleaded guilty in February to two counts of assault with the intent to commit murder, along with a weapons charge.
