A suspected shooting Thursday night outside the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) led to a pursuit down Highway 97 that ended in Sunriver.
DCSO said it received word just before 10:00 p.m. that someone fired a gun at or near the jail, located along Highway 20 in Bend. DCSO said deputies and Bend Police secured the area.

Authorities later found someone in the Sunriver Business Park who they believed to be involved in the shooting. That led to a chase on Highway 97.
Spike strips were used to stop the vehicle. A suspect was taken into custody.
The investigation continues but the sheriff’s office says there is no longer a threat to the public.
