Hunter killed in fight with Scappoose family
FOSSIL, Ore. - The Wheeler County Sheriff's Office says the Oct. 7
shooting death of a 61-year-old Portland hunter came during an altercation
with a Scappoose family.
Sheriff Bob Hudspeth says Frank Means got into a fight with three men and
an 11-year-old boy also hunting at a remote site along the John Day River.
The Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office determined that Means died from
multiple gunshot wounds.
Hudspeth says the investigation remains active. When it's complete,
District Attorney Dan Ousley will convene a grand jury to review witness
testimony and other evidence.
The sheriff declined to release the names of the Scappoose hunters.
