PENDLETON, OR (AP) -

Authorities have charged a 22-year-old Umatilla man with murder for fatally shooting another man on Oregon's Umatilla Indian Reservation.

The East Oregonian reports that Thadd Nelson was killed Wednesday in Meacham.

The Umatilla man was charged Thursday and is being held on $10 million bail.

Two other men are being held in the county jail in connection with the crime.

Primus said in court Thursday that police had to use a spike strip to stop one of those men and found at least five guns in his possession. He said the man was a convicted felon.

Umatilla County District Attorney Dan Primus says he can't provide details of the crime while the police investigation continues.
