1 victim of deer-camp shooting was foster father

Associated Press

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Authorities say one of the men shot and killed in a deer-hunting camp in northeastern Oregon was the foster father of the 14-year-old boy identified as the shooter.

Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer said Friday that two guns were involved — a hunting rifle and a revolver — and the shootings occurred about the same time, with one victim shot inside the cabin and one outside.

The victims were identified as 43-year-old Michael Piete, the foster father, and 64-year-old Kenneth C. Gilliland, both of Baker City. The name of the teen was withheld by authorities because he is a juvenile.

Authorities said that after the shootings another person at the deer camp held the boy at gunpoint while police were notified. The boy apparently accidentally shot himself in the leg.

Palmer would not say whether a motive had been established.
