31 year old male                                                                         Bend resident

Involved Person:

On Saturday October 20th at 01:23am, Bend Police received calls from the neighbors in the 20000 block of NE Sierra Drive for the report of “shots heard.” The information from the neighbors helped the officers triangulate where the most likely place the gun shots came from.

The involved person (31 year old Bend resident), called Deschutes County 911 to advise he had shot a male inside of his residence. Based on the community phone calls and a statement from the involved person, officers went to a specific address in the 20000 block of Sierra Drive. Bend Police Officers then made contact with the involved person.

Two males were found inside the residence; both had sustained gunshot wounds. A 31 year old male was found deceased. A 27 year old male was found with life threatening injuries and transported to St. Charles Bend by Bend Fire and Rescue. The male later died at St. Charles Bend.

Bend Police Detectives, the Oregon State Police Crime Lab and the Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office were called out and are actively helping with this incident. Investigators and the Crime Lab are currently executing a search warrant at two separate residences in the 20000 block of Sierra Drive. This investigation is in the early stages and it is anticipated it will last throughout most of the day. Due to the complexity of this incident, Sierra Drive will be closed in front of these two residences for the duration of the on-scene investigation.

Bend Police is in the process of notifying next of kin of the deceased. Names of the deceased and further information related to this investigation will be released as the investigation is completed. There is no risk to the community at this time.

The Bend Police Department is asking anyone with information regarding this shooting from early this morning to call Deschutes County 911 Non-Emergency at 541-693-6911. Any information, no matter how insignificant it might seem, can be vital to this investigation.

Investigation and recovery of a companion animal (Photo) - 10/01/18

Date: Monday, October 01, 2018                                                                   

Case # 2018-304562                            

Date & Time of Incident: September 28, 2018 through October 1, 2018          

Type of Incident:  Theft I of a Companion Animal                                                                                                           

Location of Incident: 111 NW Oregon; Vector Volcano


47 year old male                                                                         Bend resident


Sabrina Lynn McCaskill                 41 year old                      Philomath resident


On Friday September 28th at 10:00pm, an officer on foot patrol in downtown Bend was flagged down by a Bend resident. This resident reported his dog “Kido” was missing after he secured “Kido” outside a local business to go inside for a short period of time. The officer took the information but “Kido” was not located.

On September 29th, the resident located security camera video provided by a local business showing the area where “Kido” was secured. The video showed a white female adult taking “Kido,” manipulating the leash to do so. This information was put onto the Bend Police Department Facebook page in an attempt to identify the suspect.

Over the next day, our community and surrounding community members shared the information in an attempt to locate “Kido” and identify the suspect. On September 30th at 7:03pm, Bend Police received a phone call from the suspect’s boyfriend. The suspect, identified as Sabrina McCaskill, took the secured dog because she believed it was “malnourished.”

Based on this information, Bend Police worked with the Corvallis Police Department and the Philomath Police Department to recover “Kido.” Corvallis Police recovered “Kido” from McCaskill’s residence. Bend Police transported “Kido” from Corvallis to the Emergency Vet Center of Central Oregon. In the early morning hours of October 1st, “Kido” was reunited with his family.

McCaskill was charged with Theft I of a Companion Animal, arrested and issued a citation to appear in Deschutes County Circuit Court. Theft I of a Companion Animal is a C-Felony.

The return of “Kido” was the combination of great police work, a very compassionate and driven community and the power of social media. A special thanks to our Central Oregon Community.

This is an opportunity to remind the public that taking something that doesn’t belong to you is a crime. Under Oregon Finders Law, “finders keepers” does not apply to companion animals, unless all avenues to find the owner are exhausted. Failure to do so could result in a felony level theft charge.

In Bend, if you find a pet, notify the Bend Police Department via non-emergency dispatch (541-693-6911), or Humane Society of Central Oregon. Posting a found pet on one of the many social media pages is a good second step, but that alone is insufficient for those who do not use social media.

We’ve heard (through communications regarding this case) that there may be some people in our community who find dogs, and then extort owners to get their dogs back. Please report any occurrence of your dog being stolen so we can address the issue. As with any info on crimes that are being committed in our city, call us, enter an online report or send us a direct message over Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
