Murder Suspect And Brother Now Sought By DCSO

BEND, OR -- Detectives investigating the August 10th murder of a Redmond man in downtown Bend now say they're searching for the prime suspect's brother, in connection with the shooting. The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office had previously identified 20-year-old Caleb Joseph Cegers (pictured, left) as the suspected shooter. He now has a nationwide warrant for Murder in the Second Degree and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.

Another nationwide warrant was also issued this week for his brother, 25-year-old Dahnte Nathaniel Cegers (pictured, right), for Hindering Prosecution. He was arrested in 2019 for a fight involving a gun. He later pleaded "no contest" to a Conspiracy charge in that case. 

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of either man is asked to call non-emergency dispact at 541-693-6911. They are believed to be armed and dangerous.
