An armed man entered the Owyhee River area, about a mile from the popular Snively Hot Springs Monday evening where he allegedly jumped two adults who also had three children with them at the time.  A struggle followed with one of the adults trying to take the gun away. The gun fired and ultimately killed the armed man.

KTVB reports that Malheur County Sheriff Deputies are not sure at this time if the gun was fired by the original gunman or the adult trying to wrestle it away from him.  The identities of both parties have not yet been released but we do know for sure that the gunman is deceased.

The Malheur County Major Crimes Team and the Oregon State Police Crime Lab are currently investigating the crime scene.
