UPDATE, 11:50 a.m.: Speaking to media at the scene — see the video above — Sheriff Billy Honsal confirms that the second gunshot victim, the suspect in the original shooting, was shot by deputies.

Honsal said that the suspect was located shortly after law enforcement arrived to respond to the initial 911 call. When deputies contacted the suspect he ran into a house and, Honsal said, came out bearing a firearm, at which point the officers fired on him.

The man is in critical condition, Honsal said. The elderly woman whom he is believed to have shot is in serious but stable condition.

The county’s Critical Incident Response Team will be leading the investigation of the incident.


Cutten’s Cedar and Fern streets are closed at the moment, following two connected shootings this morning. There is a heavy police presence at the scene.

According to scanner traffic and witnesses at the scene, a younger man shot an elderly lady near that intersection. Police arrived and located the suspect, who seems to have fled into home. Additional shots were heard, and the suspect himself was down.

At this moment it’s not clear how the original suspect came to be shot. We also have no word on the condition of either of the people. Two ambulances were seen leaving the scene.

Avoid the area. We’ll be updating as we get more information.
