Investigation:

On Thursday November 19, 2020 the Bend Police Department and the Bend Fire Department responded to numerous 911 calls indicating a male had been shot in the 600 block of Riverfront Street.  911 callers reported the shooting victim had left the scene in a silver car headed toward downtown.

Investigators determined that Jordan Thorn had gone to Marshall Roger’s residence for an undetermined reason.  The relationship between Thorn and Rogers is unknown.  After brief contact between the two men, Thorn was shot by Rogers at the front door of the residence.  After being shot, Thorn drove away from the scene but stopped within a block where aid was rendered by citizens and responding officers.

Thorn was then transported to St. Charles by ambulance for a gunshot wound to his lower abdomen and left arm.  Rogers remained on scene and cooperated with investigators.  Thorn remains under medical care.  There is no threat to the community at this time, however the investigation is ongoing.  If anyone has additional information they are asked to call the non-emergency number at 541-693-6911

The investigation resulted in area roadways to be closed for several hours.  The investigation continued into Friday morning and all roadways were re-opened by 11:00am.  The Bend Police were assisted by the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, Oregon State Police, Oregon State Police Crime Lab and the City of Bend Public Works Street Division.
