TILLAMOOK COUNTY, OR (KPTV) – The Tillamook County Sheriff's Office said a man is dead after a homicide at the Sand Lake Recreation Area in South Tillamook County Saturday morning.

TCSO said just after 3:30 a.m. on Saturday, it responded to a report of a shooting. When they arrived, they found a 30-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

The suspect was identified as 18-year-old Brandon Jose Zavala-Satalich of Troutdale. He was armed with a gun when he left the scene with a juvenile female before law enforcement arrived.

Just before 5:30 a.m., a sheriff’s deputy saw the suspect crossing Galloway Road. A containment perimeter was set up and searches for the suspect were underway. The juvenile that fled with the suspect was located quickly and unharmed.

Just before 11:30 a.m., a Lincoln County K9 unit took Zavala-Satalich into custody. He was located hiding in an area close to where he was seen crossing Galloway Road. He was taken to the Tillamook County Jail and is facing multiple charges, including second degree murder.

The juvenile was taken into custody of the Tillamook County Juvenile Department and faces multiple charges.

The victim’s name is not being released due to family requests.

According to the police there were no injuries. Glad to know being murdered is not caused by injuries. Poorly written article. Don't let summer interns do the work for you.


Sadly I doubt the problem is summer interns


How about a caption for the photo? Is this the victim? The suspect? An intern from the newsroom?

Mr Q

Shhhh .. it need to support a narrative/agenda … so don’t question the MSM

Just curious

The story tells who the name belongs to.


Is the picture of the suspect, or the victim?

Just curious

[yawn]I suggest you read the article.
