DCSO: La Pine man accidentally shot, killed self


A 66-year-old La Pine man died early Tuesday of an apparently accidental self-inflicted gunshot wound, Deschutes County sheriff’s deputies said.

Deputies and La Pine Fire medics were dispatched at 3:47 a.m. to a home in the 15000 block of Greenwood Drive on a reported gunshot wound, deputies said.

They located James Glenn Overby on arrival with the apparently accidental, self-inflicted gunshot wound. Life-saving efforts were attempted by medics, but were unsuccessful, and Overby died at the scene, deputies said.

Sheriff’s detectives arrived later to help in the investigation, which also involved the district attorney’s and medical examiner’s offices.

As the investigation continues, the sheriff’s office asked the public to contact the agency at 541-693-6911 if they have any information pertaining to the incident. Any further information would be released by detectives as available.
