BEND, Ore. (AP) - A man is facing a murder charge in the shooting death of his friend at a Bend duplex.

The Bend Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/1VLi8dI ) that 34-year-old Daniel Norquist appeared in court Monday via video from the Deschutes County Jail, where he has been held since Saturday.

Police responded to the duplex Saturday and found 30-year-old Andrew Cordes dead in a unit he had reportedly rented to Norquist.

Cordes’ father said the two men had been close friends and had met almost 20 years ago. He said they had been visiting at Norquist’s apartment for several hours before Cordes was shot.

Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel said Monday he wouldn’t release additional documents pertaining to the case.

A grand jury is set to hear the case in the coming week.
