Gunshots prompt closure of Prineville streets
by Bend Weekly News Sources

PRINEVILLE, Ore. – Multiple reports of shots fired in northeast Prineville prompted the closure of a four-square block area for two hours Thursday night, but no property damage was discovered and no injuries were reported.

According to Prineville Police Captain Michael Boyd, just before 10 p.m., March 19, police officers, Crook County Sheriff’s deputies and Oregon State Police troopers searched the area of NE Third Street and Combs Flat Road. Officers also heard the shots and sounds of bullets passing overhead, and with the help of Crook County Fire & Rescue personnel, a four-square block area was closed and remained so for about two hours.

“No suspects, injured persons, damage or evidence of bullet impacts was [sic] found,” Boyd said.

Three people were detained and questioned, but were subsequently released, a news release stated.

Officers are canvassing homes in the area and the investigation is ongoing, the captain said. “If anyone has information on this incident or has discovered damage or other evidence possibly linked to this incident, please call the Prineville Police Department at 541.447.4168,” he requested.
