Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Authorities said a hostage situation in northwest Oregon late Monday led to the deaths of three people, including an 11-year-old boy.
Deputies were called to a home in Salem where they encountered the standoff. They said a Marion County sheriff's deputy fired shots after authorities entered the home.
The 11-year-old boy, whose name wasn't released, and a woman, 24-year-old Diari Bustos-Bustos, also were dead from gunshot wounds.
Another woman, Laura Rocio-Bustos, 43, was transported to the hospital with serious injuries from a gunshot wound. A 13-year-old boy was unharmed.
Police said it's unclear whether the sheriff's deputy's gunshots caused any of the injuries. He's been put on administrative leave -- standard practice for police-involved shootings.
The Marion County Sheriff's Office didn't disclose many details of the standoff other than to say it resulted in "multiple" deaths.
No deputies were injured.
Streets around the home were cordoned off for hours during the standoff.
The Oregon State Police was leading the investigation, officials said.
Salem, the capital of Oregon, is located about 40 miles southwest of downtown Portland.
