TILLAMOOK, OR (KPTv) - A man was found dead inside a home Saturday morning.

Tillamook police said they responded to a residence at the 2600 block of 6th Street in Tillamook on report of an assault around 5:35 a.m.

Upon arrival, officers found a man dead inside the home and discovered that a possible suspect involved had fled on foot.

Law enforcement located the suspect in the vicinity of 8th Street and Stillwell Avenue. The subject was taken into custody without further incident and lodged in jail, according to police.

The deceased man was identified as Jeffery A. Carr Jr, 43, of Tillamook.

Members of the Carr family could be found standing just beyong the police tape in disbelief.

"I’m speechless right now I’m in shock, that’s mostly it. We’re going to get counseling and be there for each other," Jeffery's brother Ted Carr said.

Ted said he and his brother grew up just two blocks away from where Jeffery was stabbed.

“Yeah we played around this neighborhood all the time, you know, this is where we rolled when we were kids," Ted said.

The suspect was identified as Michael Joseph Blaser Jr, 35, of Tillamook. Blaser is facing charges of second-degree murder and first-degree assault.

Police said the incident is still under investigation.
