Mark Leo Gregory Gago, 42, was killed following the quadruple murder inside the home near Woodburn, located about 20 miles south of Portland. Clackamas County deputies said they received a 911 call about 10:15 p.m. Saturday that appeared to be a domestic violence incident that sounded “dramatic, very intense.”
"Deputies knew it was going to be a bad scene,” Clackamas County Sheriff's Sgt. Brian Jensen said Sunday morning, KOIN reported.
Police arrived at the scene and found four people — identified as 9-month-old Olivia Lynn Rose Gago; Shaina E. Sweitzer, 31; Jerry William Bremer, 66; and Pamela Denise Bremer, 64 — dead inside and Gago attempting to harm another girl. Authorities said all of the victims were related to Gago, but did not release additional information.
"Deputies saved the life of a young girl by using deadly force on the murder suspect as he was attempting to kill her. All deputies were uninjured, suspect is deceased," the sheriff's office said in a tweet.
The child and a woman, who were not identified, survived the incident and were taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries that were not life-threatening.
