(Editor’s note: Central Oregon Daily News is choosing not to use the name of the suspect in the Aug. 28 shooting at the Safeway inside The Forum shopping center in Bend. He will be referred to in this story only as “the shooter” or “the suspect.”)
The Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office has released the affidavit from one of the Bend Police detectives who responded to and investigated the Aug. 28 shooting at the Safeway on Bend’s Eastside. The release included the application for a search warrant.
The release comes one day before the store is set to reopen for the the first time since the shooting.
The affidavit from Detective Eli Allen, written in the hours shortly after the shooting, said he responded to reports of an active shooter at the Safeway. Allen arrived after the suspect killed two people inside the store before taking the shooter took own life.
