FLORENCE, Ore. -- A shooting in the Florence area Tuesday morning killed one, the Lane County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies responded to the 90800 block of Southview Lane and found a 71-year-old woman dead and a 75-year-old man injured. The man was taken to the hospital.

"There is a lot of heartache involved, a lot of wishes for prayers for the family members, and it's just a really hard thing," said Florence resident Linda Adcox. "It's never good when something like this happens so close to home."

At this time, there is no indication of a threat to the community.
