A Terrebonne teenager has been charged with attempted murder after shooting a relative in the leg after an argument on Friday, officials said.
Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Kent Vander Kamp said someone called 911 around 4:22 p.m on Friday after hearing an argument followed by a gunshot.
According to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, 38-year-old Joshua Ford and the 17-year-old relative got into an argument in the home on Smith Rock Loop when the teen got a handgun and went outside. Ford went outside to talk to the teen and the argument continued until the teen shot Ford in the lower leg.
After units from the sheriff’s office arrived on scene, they located all of the occupants of the home and took the teen into custody. He was taken to the Deschutes County Juvenile Detention Center and charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon, pointing a firearm at another person and recklessly endangering another person.
Ford was taken to St. Charles in Redmond for his injuries and released later Friday evening.
Detectives from the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Detective Division served a search warrant at the residence at about 10:00 p.m. on Friday and processed the scene for evidence.
The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team also assisted with an initial response, including an armored tactical vehicle and a SWAT Medic.
Sheriff’s Office deputies contacted the people inside the home by telephone and were able to direct them outside to waiting deputies, Vander Kamp said.
