The 31-year old man, who was not a resident where the incident occurred, was transported to St. Charles Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased. His name is being withheld at this time. An autopsy is pending.
Per Bend Police Department standard policy, the officer involved in the shooting has been placed on paid administrative leave. The officer's name is also withheld at this time.
