Three deputies from the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office have been placed on leave pending the investigation into the shooting of a suspect on parole. The Sheriff’s Department says they spent six hours Tuesday using drones and canines trying to track down 47 year old Steven Newberg for violating his parole and failing to register as a sex offender. Wednesday morning deputies say they were able to follow-up on a tip and caught up with Newberg walking along BLM, west of Bend Road. They say Newberg refused to drop a knife he was holding, and deputies shot him. He was taken into custody after his injuries were determined to be non-life threatening.
