WARM SPRINGS, Ore. (AP) — The FBI has identified a fatal shooting victim on the Warm Springs Reservation in central Oregon as a tribal member.

The FBI and Warm Springs police said Wednesday the victim was 24-year-old Delmer Davis.

Investigators said Davis was shot Tuesday afternoon while he was sitting in a vehicle holding his young son outside a home in the Greeley Heights area of Warm Springs.

The FBI said federal charges were pending against another tribal member, 23-year-old Ted Barney Jr., after he surrendered to authorities.

An FBI spokeswoman said an attorney was expected to be appointed at a federal court hearing this week.
