    INDEPENDENCE, Ore. (KOIN) -- Polk County Sheriff's Deputies found a man dead Sunday morning on Halls Ferry Road outside of independence, Oregon after they say he burglarized at least two homes Saturday evening.

    In a press release sent to KOIN 6 News, detectives say that 19 year-old Genaro Hernandez Mendoza of West Salem was going to visit family who lived on the farm when he entered and burglarized a home on Independence Highway.

    Deputies say Mendoza took several items and fled from the home on foot. He returned to the farm and placed the stolen items behind a barn. They say he then stole a pickup truck belonging to the farm and returned to the home he burglarized stealing more items and a shotgun and AR-15 rifle.

    Det. Williams with the Polk County Sheriff's Department tells KOIN 6 News that they believe a piece of the shotgun was caught in the trigger area of the AR-15. While crossing the field the truck hit a bump causing the weapon to fire once striking and killing Mendoza.

    Farm workers found the truck and Mendoza Sunday morning with the engine still running and the truck in drive.

    Polk County Sheriff Bob Wolfe added that they would be reviewing the evidence to determine if anyone assisted Mendoza with the Burglary.

    I wonder if anyone assisted the shotgun. More power to whoever, if so. (How any part of a shotgun could get inside a trigger guard on an AR, I cannot see.)

    I can see the Dems spin on this now "Evil AR-15 kills man by itself"
