CENTRAL POINT, Ore. (AP) – Police are investigating the circumstances behind a Friday night shooting in southwestern Oregon that sent two people to the hospital and sparked a manhunt that lasted less than an hour before the alleged shooter fatally shot himself.

Police found the bleeding woman, along with a man, who was also shot.
Police said both provided information about the person who shot them.
At 8:12 p.m., police said a caller reportedly found the suspect’s vehicle in Gold Hill.
Officers at the scene determined the dead man to be the suspect in the shooting.
