Caelen and Staton Bosisto, victims

Murder suspect Andrew Geronimi

A Lane County sheriff's spokesman said there is no known connection between Geronimi and the victims.

Caelen and Staton Bosisto were shot inside their home in the 37000 block of Highway 58 near Hilltop Drive, east of Pleasant Hill on Monday morning. Caelen was killed in the attack. Staton was shot in the head but survived. His condition is not known at this time.

Deputies responded to the residence shortly before 7 a.m. after receiving a 911 call that a person had been shot.

A family member confirmed the couple had a 2-month-old baby which was present in the home. The child was not injured.

Soon after arriving to the scene, authorities saw a man who was carrying a gun and hiding in some bushes outside the house. After a brief standoff, the man was taken into custody. On Monday evening, KEZI 9 News discovered this was not his first run-in with the law. 

In January, Geronimi was arraigned on several charges related to a domestic violence hostage situation in Norway, Michigan. When asked about Geronimi, Norway police said they "know him very well."
