PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A 15-year-old has been charged as an adult in connection a McMinnville shooting that left a woman dead and a man injured.

Andrew David Vineyard lived with his dad, John, his dad’s girlfriend, Kimberly Forness, and roommate Ron Spiker. Forness was found dead inside their home on March 8 and Spiker was found injured outside near the home.

Friends said Forness was like a step-mother to the teen, and they had lived together for a while.

According to a GoFundMe account created by Spiker’s daughter, he was shot in the face and hip. He had surgery at OHSU to treat his injuries.

The teenager is charged with murder, attempted murder, first-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm and tampering with physical evidence, McMinnville police said. The charges are being filed in adult court.

Vineyard is being held at the Yamhill County Jail. He will be arraigned Monday.

Forness leaves behind 3 daughters in Oregon and relatives in Georgia.
