EAGLE POINT, Ore. — Law enforcement officers from multiple agencies swarmed an area of Eagle Point near Church on the Hill for a "shots fired" investigation on Tuesday night. The Jackson County Sheriff's Office confirmed just after 10:45 p.m. that this was an officer-involved shooting.

According to the agency, JCSO deputies and officers from Eagle Point Police responded to reports of a domestic disturbance in the 100-block of Idlewood Drive shortly before 7:30 p.m. Before officers arrived at the scene, a man left the location in an SUV, accompanied by another man.

Police stopped the SUV on Stevens Road in the parking lot of Church on the Hill. A few minutes later, one of the deputies on the scene "advised shots were fired," JCSO said.

One of the men in the SUV has died, the Sheriff's Office said, and another is being treated at a local hospital. One deputy was hit by a bullet fired from the SUV, but the injury is believed to be a minor one.

The case has been handed over to the Major Assault Death Investigation Unit (MADIU), with Oregon State Police as the lead agency.

Church on the Hill is located just south of Hillside Elementary School along E Main Street, which becomes Stevens Road. Officers had blocked off both roads for the investigation before 9:30 p.m.

This is a developing story and will be updated with more details as they emerge.
