KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — A woman is in custody after calling 911 to tell them she had shot a man inside a Klamath Falls home Wednesday afternoon. The call came in at 12:29 p.m., and indicated that the shooting occurred at the 1400 block of Worden Avenue in Klamath Falls.

Officers from the Klamath Falls Police Department (KFPD) responded to the scene and found a man with a gunshot wound to his torso. KFPD officers say that they provided medical aid to the male until emergency medical personnel arrived—but the man died from his injuries.
