Bonsignore was charged with murder and is being lodged at the Clackamas County Jail.
An investigation found that Fenner was killed by Bonsignore when Fenner tried to defend another person in the mobile home.
Officers from Damascus Police and deputies from the Clackamas County Sheriffs Office responded to reports of shooting at about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the mobile home park, 15758 S. Highway 224, Damascus.
Police found Fenner and Bonsignore on the street with gunshot wounds in front of a mobile home in the park.
Witnesses and neighbors were performing CPR on one of the men and officers called for medical aid and the fire department for backup.
The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office said the investigation is ongoing.
