BEND, OR -- The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office says a suspect was shot by a Deputy, Friday morning, but is expected to survive. Authorities say Deputies were at a home near Pleasant Ridge Drive, between Bend and Redmond, to locate and arrest a suspect on an outstanding felony warrant. The suspect was shot just before 10:45 a.m. and was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The Deputy involved was not hurt.
The Tri-County Major Incident Team is investigating, led by Oregon State Police. The northbound onramp to Highway 97, east of the highway remains closed due to the high number of emergency vehicles and drivers are asked to continue to avoid the area.
DCSO says further details will be released by the Deschutes County District Attorney's office, in coordination with OSP.
