A man and a woman were arrested Monday evening after a gunshot was fired near Deschutes Memorial Gardens, 3875 N. U.S. Highway 97. A cemetery employee reported hearing the gunshot and a round passing over his head shortly after 7:30 p.m. He said he also heard a man in a driveway north of the cemetery yelling something he couldn’t make out.
Deschutes County sheriff’s deputies responded, with aid from the Bend Police Department and Oregon State Police.
After talking with the employee, officers determined the shot had come from a nearby home and contacted two people in the driveway.
Gregory Todd Phipps, 60, was arrested on suspicion of unlawful use of a weapon, reckless endangering, disorderly conduct and hunting during prohibited hours. Cynthia Renee Rogerson, 49, was arrested on suspicion of aiding in a game violation, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
