The Lane County Sheriff’s Office said the man suspected of killing 3 people in Deadwood Tuesday night has been arrested.

Jericho Jamison, 25, was taken to the Lane County Jail and charged with second-degree murder, unlawful use of a firearm and possession of a firearm as a felon.

Early investigations indicate there was a dispute involving Jamison and the 3 victims just prior to the shooting. The Sheriff's Office received reports of shots fired just before 9:45 P.M. Tuesday.

A tip reportedly led officials to Jamison's home in the area. He was taken into custody without incident on Wednesday morning. His Geo Metro has also been found. The public had been told to be on the lookout for him and the vehicle.

The names of the victims are being withheld at this time.
