A man is suspected of killing four people in Clackamas County, Oregon on Saturday, including a woman who grew up in Kennewick.

Mark Leo Gregory Gago, 42, was trying to kill a young girl when deputies found him at a home on South Barlow Road in unincorporated Woodburn, about 30 miles south of Portland, on Saturday.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said deputies used deadly force to kill the suspect and save the girl’s life. No deputies were injured.

Four victims – three adults and an infant – were found dead at the home.

Their names are Shaina Sweitzer, 31, Jerry Bremer, 66, Pamela Bremer, 64, and Olivia Gago, 9 months. All of them were Woodburn residents.

Sweitzer is a Kennewick native who graduated from Kennewick High School in 2005. Photos on her Facebook page show her with posing with the suspect.

Investigators told KPTV they believe the victims, survivors and suspect were all living together and may be related.

A woman who was inside the house told a neighbor Gago attacked her with an ax-type a weapon and may have been high on methamphetamine during the attack.
