Accidental Shooting and Fatal Car Accident
On July 20th at 7:55pm, Klamath County Sheriff’s Office deputies and medical personnel were dispatched to the Cold Springs area west of Rocky Point, Oregon to the report of a man seriously injured from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The shooting was accidental in nature as reported by witnesses. As a result of the incident Robert V. Huycke (58 years of age) was transported by ambulance to Sky Lakes Medical Center. When deputies later arrived at the hospital to conduct a follow-up to the investigation, they learned the subject had passed away as a result of a single gunshot injury.
There is no indication of foul play and the investigation was completed following notification of the victim’s family. Complications in locating Robert Huycke’s next of kin resulted in the delay of information regarding this incident being released to the public.
