ASHLAND, Ore. — A man shot and killed a cook at an Oregon lodge in an apparent random attack that ended with the suspect firing shots at Interstate traffic before a pickup hit and killed him.

An early Saturday morning homicide and apparent robbery at Callahan’s lodge in Ashland sparked simultaneous crime scenes after the man believed to have killed cook Ryan Bagley reportedly opened fire on traffic driving on southbound Interstate 5 near the California border.

Oregon State Police and Jackson County Sheriff’s Office reports say the chaos ended when a motorist whose pickup was apparently struck by bullets ran over the shooter.

A release from Sheriff’s Sgt. Julie Denney says there’s no sign Bagley knew the shooter.
