MYRTLE CREEK, Ore. -- The Douglas County Sheriff's Office says investigators were back on the scene Thursday, where Myrtle Creek police officers shot and killed a man.
John Bocock, 58, died after he was shot just a short distance away from the Village Realty office where he allegedly shot Vince Lytsell, 51, who worked at the real estate company.
Investigators from the Douglas County Major Crimes Team including District Attorney Rick Wesenberg, were looking for more evidence where the incident happened next to the Dairy Queen.
From there, police say the shooter walked about a hundred yards to an art shop where his estranged wife worked, and was confronted by police officers. "He walked a short distance away near 1st and Oak Street, and it was at that point the Myrtle Creek Police had been alerted, 911 calls had come in, and so he was confronted at that point by Myrtle Creek Police officers," said Deputy Dwes Hutson of the Sheriff's office. "The suspect was shot by Myrtle Creek officers."
Hutson said the officers administered CPR, but the suspect was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The officers involved are on paid administrative leave while the investigation is prepared for the grand jury, which will determine if the shooting was justified.
Myrtle Creek residents are still shaken by the events.
One woman who said she saw the whole shooting unfold from the deck of her business, said police used tremendous restraint in trying to talk the suspect into putting down the gun, but he refused to do it.
