MCMINNVILLE, Ore. – The 15-year-old suspected of murdering a woman and shooting a man in McMinnville last week has been identified.

The Yamhill County District Attorney said Andrew David Vineyard is facing several charges, including murder, attempted murder, first-degree assault, and tampering with physical evidence.

Officers were called out Wednesday on reports of a shooting on Northeast Oregon Street. McMinnville Police found the homeowner, Ron Spiker, outside the home with gunshot wounds

They said Kimberly Lynn Forness was found dead inside of the home. Police have not announced her cause of death.

Vineyard, Forness, and Spiker all lived at the house. Police have not released how they are connected to one another.

Spiker's ex-wife, Tina Spiker told KATU News the boy was agitated when his dad took away his computer.

"He was doing stuff that he wasn't supposed to be on the computer. The dad removed the computer and while the dad was at work and the roommate's girlfriend was there, the son just snapped," Tina Spiker said.

After the shooting, Tina Spiker says the teenager ran to the Yamhill County Courthouse and turned himself in. He was taken to a hospital with some undisclosed injuries before being arrested.

Murder, attempted murder, and first-degree assault are all Measure 11 crimes, meaning Vineyard's charges will be filed in adult court - the Yamhill County Circuit Court. His arraignment is set for Monday afternoon.
