Here is the latest Oregon news from The Associated Press

COOS BAY, Ore. (AP) – A Coos County prosecutor says it appears a gunman first lured his father to a remote campsite and killed him, then drove to a beach where he shot five cars in a parking lot, killing a man who was sleeping in his vehicle. The gunman then killed himself. The DA’s Office says Zachary Brimhall’s father, William Brimhall of Dillard, was found shot to death yesterday near his vehicle on a rural road about 50 miles from Bastendorff Beach, where the drive-by shooting took place earlier in the day.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The Washington County sheriff’s office says a woman has died after an apparent assault at a suburban Portland apartment complex. Officers are looking for one person. The Oregonian reports that sheriff’s deputies say someone reported the woman had been stabbed late yesterday. Deputies found the wounded woman, who died at the scene. She was not immediately identified.

HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) – A second woman who worked at the Washington County Jail in Hillsboro has been accused of having sex with the same inmate – a man held on charges that include failing to register as a sex offender. Brett Robinson was arrested yesterday after a grand jury indicted her on charges of custodial sexual misconduct. A month ago Jill Curry was arrested on similar charges. Sgt. Bob Ray says the women did not know about one another’s contact with the inmate.

LAKESIDE, Ore. (AP) – The Coos County sheriff’s office says a man was hit in the head by a helicopter’s rotor blade in an accident at an airport in the southern Oregon town of Lakeside. Staff Sgt. Pat Downing said yesterday that the man was injured Monday and taken to a nearby hospital, then flown to Oregon Health & Science University hospital in Portland. The man was not identified.
