Man kills parents, girlfriend and their nine-month-old daughter at their rural Oregon home

A man killed four members of his own family and was then shot dead by police as he tried to murder a little girl.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said Mark Leo Gregory Gago, 42, killed four family members ranging in age from 9 months to 66-years-old before deputies shot him.

Deputies arrived at the home late Saturday and found a ‘horrific’ scene at the family home in Woodburn, Oregon, according to Clackamas County Sheriff’s Sergeant Brian Jensen.

‘I’ve talked to investigators, 20-year veterans, and they’re saying this is a shocking scene,’ Jensen said.

‘They were not shot,’ Jensen told reporters near the scene Sunday morning. 

‘We’re not sure what was used at this time. I’ve been told that there were numerous weapons, swords, things of that nature in the residence. 

‘The investigators are trying to determine what exactly was used to kill each person.’

Authorities said they were investigating the incident as one of ‘extreme domestic violence.’ 

Two family members survived the attack and were taken to nearby hospital with injuries that do not appear to be life threatening, the Sheriff’s Office said. No deputies were injured.

The homicide victims were identified Sunday morning as Olivia Lynn Rose Gago, 9-months-old, Shaina E. Sweitzer, 31,  Jerry William Bremer, 66 and Pamela Denise Bremer, 64.

Gago was attempting to kill another child, a young girl, when he was killed, according to the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.

It is understood that the victims were Gago’s parents, his girlfriend and the nine-month-old child he had with his girlfriend.

An 8-year-old child who was the girlfriend’s daughter from a previous relationship survived. 

A roommate also survived and is being treated for her injuries at an area hospital.

One of the weapons used was an axe, the neighbors said, but that has not been confirmed by authorities. 

Deputies responded to the emergency call from a resident of the home in the 32000 block of South Barlow Road at about 10.15 pm  Saturday, the sheriff’s office said.

 Sargent Jensen added: ‘It was described as violent and a pretty hectic scene was being described to our call takers. … deputies found deceased adult female outside the residence.

A neighbor told KOIN 6 News she did not hear anything Saturday night. However she got email from the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office telling her about the homicides.

She said she’s lived in her house for more than 30 years, adding: ‘They’ve been there equally as long.’

The neighbor said she knows of the family who lives at that house, but ‘hasn’t had many interactions with them over the years.’

She was ‘shocked’ when she heard the news. A neighbor who did not want to be identified said one of the two survivors of the quadruple homicide ran to his house, bleeding.

He claimed that she told him Gago attacked her in her sleep with a weapon. She said she fought him off and escaped, saying that she believed he was high on something.

He told KGW News: ‘She was yelling that she had been attacked and we needed to call 911. 

‘My daughter was walking across the yard and she ran into the house and called me.

‘I went and talked to her and let her into the property and called 911. 

‘She had some injuries on her arms, injuries to her torso. She said I didn’t see them but she was bleeding a little bit.’

Asked did she know what happened, the neighbor responded: ‘She said she was asleep in her bed and Mark woke her up by attacking her. 

‘She wrestled with him, got the weapon away from him.  She said it was like an axe- type thing, described as a splitting ball for firewood.’
