Stevens Co. slaying baffles neighbors

A 63-year-old retiree is dead after a weekend attack outside his upscale home near Colville, sheriff’s officials said Tuesday.

Gordon R. Feist was shot twice late Sunday on Smart Way, a private cul-de-sac about four miles south of Colville, as he rode a small utility vehicle. He was taken off life support Monday at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center.

A neighbor reported a car crash to Stevens County officials about 11:20 p.m. after witnessing Feist crash into a utility pole as he rode a small vehicle that another neighbor described as a Kubota-style golf cart. Medics arrived to find Feist bleeding from two gunshot wounds, said Stevens County Sheriff Kendle Allen.

Sheriff’s officials say they have no suspects or motive in the slaying but say they don’t believe it was accidental.
