DAMASCUS, OR (KPTV) -

One man was killed and another was taken to the hospital in a shooting between two men who knew each other at a Damascus mobile home park.

The shooting was reported at 5:30 p.m. at the Riverview Mobile Estates on the 15000 block of Southeast Highway 224.

A Clackamas Fire District #1 spokesperson said one person was pronounced dead at the scene, while another person was shot in the leg.

"Everybody knows everybody. It’s a small community. Nothing like this ever happens. It’s a quiet neighborhood," neighbor Richard Martinez said.

Deputies arrived and said a suspect was in custody and there was no threat to the public.

Investigators said it appeared the two men shot each other, as they both fired a gun. Deputies said the men were known to each other. 

"It shouldn’t come to the point where somebody has to take somebody else’s life. Life’s too short for that," Martinez said.

The man who survived was taken to the hospital with injuries described as non-life threatening. 

No other details were immediately released as detectives conducted an investigation.
