MADRAS, Ore. (AP) -- The FBI says a 24-year-old member of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs was fatally shot on the central Oregon reservation as he sat in a vehicle outside a home, holding his young son. The child was not hurt.

FBI spokeswoman Beth Anne Steele says the victim was pronounced dead Tuesday afternoon at Mountain View Hospital in Madras. He was not immediately identified pending notification of relatives.

Steele described it as "an apparent drive-by attack." The FBI is asking for public help in identifying the shooter. Warm Springs tribal police, Oregon State Police and Jefferson County sheriff's officers are also investigating.
