It was also the first time since November 2019 that Bayern conceded more than three goals in a Bundesliga match. He controlled a cross with his back to the goal and turned beautifully to beat goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

A trained negotiator spoke to the suspect by phone, Sergeant Jeremy Landers of the sheriff's office said.

'I heard sirens when the ambulances were coming in, they loaded three different people I could see, one right outside my house.

No law enforcement officers were injured and there's no reason to believe there is any outstanding danger to the Salem community, officials say.

Neighbor Brian Johnson described the situation as "kinda disturbing".

Police said "the shooting took place" and several people died at the scene.

The Oregon State Police are leading the investigation into the shooting as they would with any deputy involved shooting for the sheriff's office, the release said. The deputy, who has worked for the sheriff's office for two years, has been put on administrative leave.
