(LA PINE, Ore.) - Preliminary information from on-scene commanders indicates that just before 2:00 A.M., Sunday morning, 9-1-1 call centers in Klamath County received a report of shots being fired at or into a residence on Collar Drive, just south of La Pine.

Troopers investigating the incident learned the suspect, identified as 31-year-old Gary Davis, of La Pine, had threatened a man at that location previously.

No injuries were reported during the shooting and the matter is still under investigation.

Shortly before 7:00 A.M., troopers and Deschutes County Sheriff's Department deputies, tracked Davis to a residence in La Pine (Deschutes County) where he was staying with his girlfriend, identified as 24-year old Tasha Murphey, also of La Pine.

Troopers and deputies who arrived began negotiating with the subjects who barricaded themselves in the residence. A limited number of OSP SWAT personnel were dispatched to the scene to assist with the incident.

At approximately 9:50 A.M., Davis was taken into custody without further incident on a probation violation with additional charges pending. Murphey was not injured during the incident.

OSP Criminal Investigative Services Division is continuing the investigation.
