Oregon man sentenced for manslaughter in deadly shooting

BEAVERCREEK, Ore. (AP) — A man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for a deadly shooting that followed an argument in rural northwest Oregon.

KATU-TV reported Wednesday that Howard Bunnell Jr. was sentenced earlier this month after pleading guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the death of 45-year-old Alvin Wallenstein.

According to court documents, the two men had gotten into an argument outside Bunnell’s home in rural Clackamas County in August 2017.

Authorities say Bunnell fired a shotgun at Wallenstein’s vehicle, and Wallenstein pulled out a handgun.

According to the documents, the two exchanged gunfire, resulting in Wallenstein getting shot in the chest. He died at the scene.
