A tactical team later confirmed thatĀ all three died. When officers first went inside the apartment to preserve everything around the scene, they heard a single gunshot and backed out.

“We thought it might be a homicide. At that point and time we backed out, we heard rustling in the side and we heard the slide of a gun and one additional gun shot from inside,” Baverton Police’s Jeremy Shaw told KATU.

Officials believe it to be a murder-suicide.
