TURNER, Ore. -- An autopsy conducted by the Oregon State medical examiner on Sunday found that a woman who was killed Friday night while her husband was shooting at police in Turner was shot in the head.

Oregon State Police are investigating the death of 23-year-old Adrian Nicole Bird as a homicide.

Her boyfriend, 24-year-old Dustin Michael Bryant, was arrested after an eight-hour standoff, holding Bird's 2-year-old daughter hostage. She was not hurt.

Bryant is held without bail in the Marion County Jail.

The standoff began when two Turner officers responding to a domestic disturbance at an apartment encountered Bryant and his girlfriend coming down the stairs. Police say he drew a gun and fired several shots toward the officers as Bird tried to run away.
