GRANTS PASS (AP) — Police shot and killed a man on Tuesday at the offices of the Oregon State Police in a southwestern Oregon town, authorities said.

The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety said in a statement that several state troopers received minor injuries during the incident. Details on what happened were not immediately divulged, but Rep. Carl Wilson, R-Grants Pass, said the state police likely saved lives.

“The quick and heroic action of dedicated OSP Troopers saved lives and protected the public today,” said Wilson, who is the House Republican leader.

A witness told the Daily Courier, a Grants Pass newspaper, that the person who was shot had a gun. The unidentified witness said she was in a church complex adjacent to the state police station when she saw a man walk into the station and then heard four gunshots.
