1 man dead, 1 detained in shooting at Prineville apartment

Prineville Police are investigating a homicide that happened at an apartment complex Sunday afternoon and say they have detained a suspect.

It happened around 4:35 p.m. at the Iron Horse Mesa Apartments on NE Colleen Road.

Prineville Police say 911 received a call about a gunshot victim. Officers arrived and found the victim, identified as Kade Riley Nichol, 27, not breathing and non-responsive. Despite efforts to save Nichol, he died of his injuries.

Police were able to find and detain the alleged shooter, a 29-year-old Prineville man who the police department has not yet named.

With the help of other agencies, police worked through the night executing search warrants and collecting evidence, the department said.

Prineville Police say their investigation found that the suspect and victim knew each other. Nichol entered the residence of the suspect where they got into a fight. Police say the suspect then fired the weapon.

Police say there is no longer any danger to the public and the investigation continues.

Central Oregon Daily News’ Karli Olson spoke to a neighbor who heard the shots. She’ll have that report Monday night on Central Oregon Daily News at 5:00, 6:00 and 11:00 p.m.
