Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Bend police released more details this afternoon on a Awbrey Butte home break-in that took a deadly turn late Saturday night.

Police said that 33-year-old Shane Michael Munoz of Bend was shot and killed during an altercation with homeowner Kevin Marshall Perry.

According to police, Perry returned home around 12:30 a.m. Sunday morning accompanied by Amanda Weinman of Eugene to find the front door of Perry’s Awbrey Butte residence had been forced open. Perry and Weinman reportedly found Munoz in the living room of the home where a struggle ensued. According to police, Perry shot Munoz during the skirmish. When police arrived at the scene, Munoz was already dead.

Police have already executed a search warrant for Perry’s home but have not arrested Perry in relation to the shooting.

Police said the case remains under investigation.

As reported by the Source recently, Oregon is among the states that offer broad protections to home/gun owners who are deemed to be defending themselves, a concept that is referred to as the Castle Doctrine but extends outside the home in states like Oregon that have adopted or otherwise codified "Stand Your Ground" laws.
