CAVE JUNCTION, Ore. —
UPDATE (November 6): The deceased has been identified as Richard James Ocoyne (46) from Cave Junction.
UPDATE: Around 8 a.m. on Monday morning, Oregon State Police says that troopers and Josephine County Sheriff's deputies responded to the report of a shooting in Cave Junction.
Investigation revealed that a man drove up to a house on Ken Rose Lane and began shooting at the residence. One of the occupants of the house fired back at the vehicle, OSP said. The male suspect in the vehicle was hit, and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The Oregon State Police Major Crimes Team has command of the investigation going forward. OSP says that no further information will be released at this time.
NewsWatch 12's reporter on the scene said that the situation appeared to have reached some kind of resolution not long after 1 p.m. — with personnel from law enforcement beginning to leave the area and opening Ken Rose Lane back up for traffic.

INITIAL REPORT: The scene of a shooting south of Cave Junction is still extremely active — with police, emergency crews and SWAT personnel all in attendance.
Details of the situation are still vague at this time. Earlier this morning, Oregon State Police (OSP) confirmed that they were "assisting Josephine County on a shooting call." The epicenter of the situation is Ken Rose Lane, just south of Cave Junction along the Redwood Highway.
A NewsWatch 12 reporter on the scene says that ambulances, fire trucks from Illinois Valley Fire District (IVFD) and a SWAT armored vehicle are in the area. OSP has confirmed that the scene is "still not secure."
Law enforcement has not yet verified if anyone has been harmed, and what the current state of the situation may be.
This is a developing story, and NewsWatch 12 will be updating this article with more details as they emerge.
