TROUTDALE, Ore. (AP) – The mother of a 14-year-old boy killed at an Oregon high school says he loved his friends and sports, especially soccer. Jennifer Hoffman released a statement, a day after her son Emilio Hoffman was shot at Reynolds High School. She urged his friends to be happy like Emilio.
CENTRAL POINT, Ore. (AP) – The Jackson County sheriff says two deputies were serving an eviction order on an Ashland man Tuesday when he came out of his bedroom pointing a shotgun at them, and they shot and killed him.
