PORTLAND, OREGON - Mark Leo Gregory Gago, 42, murdered four family members on January 19, 2019 before deputies shot him. The sheriff's office identified the victims as 9-month-old Olivia Lynn Rose Gago, 31-year-old Shaina E. Sweitzer, 64-year-old Pamela Denise Bremer, and 66-year-old Jerry William Bremer. A memorial of candles, flowers and teddy bears were set upside outside the home. Gago and the victims lived together at a house located in the 32000 block of South Barlow Road – an area surrounded by farmland that sits just south of Adams Airport.
