KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) — Four people were shot, two of them fatally, and a sheriff’s deputy was hospitalized after a two-car accident on the way to the scene, authorities said.

Andrew Lee Noe, 30, of Klamath Falls, Oregon, was arrested in the Sunday night shootings just north of Chiloquin, the Herald and News reported Monday. Noe was booked on charges of first-degree murder, attempted murder, reckless endangerment and unlawful use of a weapon and was to appear in court Monday afternoon, court records showed.
