'Multiple' people dead following 'hostage situation' in Salem, Oregon State Police investigating
Marion County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a "possible hostage situation" at about 12:30 p.m. in the 200 block of Juneva Place SE and Sheriff's Office negotiators called the individual believed to have taken others in the house hostage.

Officials said "shots were fired" as the "incident unfolded," leading to "multiple fatalities." No deputies were injured.

Officials have declined to provide information regarding how many were killed, who killed them, or details of the events that led to the situation. Sgt. Jeremy Landers, a spokesperson with the Sheriff's Office, declined to release any information about the individuals killed until family members have been notified.

Gunman shot others then apparently shot himself inside the home. Looks to be murder-suicide.
Neighbors report what they saw:

A woman and an 11-year-old boy were killed in a hostage situation that unfolded in Salem, Oregon, state police said Tuesday. The suspect was also found dead. Deputies from the Marion County Sheriff's Office responded Monday to a call of a possible hostage situation around 12:30 p.m. (3:30 p.m. ET), according to a news release from the sheriff's office. Salem is about 45 miles southwest of Portland.

The suspect, Jose Jesus Lopez-Tinoco, 34, was keeping two adults and two children hostage when law enforcement officers arrived, Oregon State Police said Tuesday. Deputies were able to establish communication with the suspect and were trying to resolve the situation when they heard gunshots, police said in a statement. As they made their way into the home, they found Diari Bustos-Bustos, 24, and the 11-year-old boy, who was not named, dead with gunshot wounds, police said.

A 43-year-old woman, identified as Laura Rocio-Bustos, had a gunshot wound and was taken to a local hospital. Police said the other child inside the home, a 13-year-old boy, was not injured. The suspect was found dead "with what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound," state police said. Authorities did not discuss a possible motive for the incident. It's unclear whether the suspect and the victims knew each other. A deputy who fired "a yet to be determined" number of rounds when authorities made their way inside the home has been placed on administrative leave, police said.

If you always wanted to kick in a door and start shooting... Marines maybe?

Re-education might be better.... The Marines have stricter rules of engagement.

Kind of a damned if you do, damned if you don't moment for the cops. No matter what they do, it looks wrong. Wait and let more people be executed or storm in in force and listen to the killer shoot as you enter. The press will criticize either way because they don't have to make the decision or take the heat.

Nobody knows yet. Maybe after the investigation. It's not a TV show. Time is involved to find out what actually happened.
