It turns out the incident involving a shooter at the Richland Shilo Inn could have been much worse after talking to the accused. That man, identified as Jamin L. Harris, admitted to police that his original plan was to take an escort he just paid for sex out in the country near Bend Oregon and kill her according to news reports. Harris was arrested after a standoff where he shot multiple times through the hotel walls before surrendering to SWAT.

Even though admitting his plans to police, Harris has plead innocent to charges of felony harassment, second-degree assault with a gun, reckless endangerment and second-degree unlawful possession of a gun. His trial is scheduled for January 30th.
