A man who killed four people at an Oregon home was attempting to kill a child when he was shot and killed by responding police on Saturday.
Deputies said they received a 911 call about 10:15 p.m. Saturday that appeared to be a domestic violence incident. Police arrived at the scene and found four people, a male and three females ranging from ages of an infant to mid-60s, dead inside the home in Canby, Oregon. The suspect, described as a man in his 40s, was shot and killed by deputies. “Suspect was attempting to kill a child when deputies saved her life by using lethal force against the suspect,” police said in a tweet. The child and a woman survived the incident.
It’s unclear what led to the deadly domestic incident and an investigation is ongoing.
