Home invasion shooting suspect arrested in Salem

SALEM, OR (KPTV) -

A Grande Ronde man wanted in connection with a home invasion shooting was arrested while trying to buy a used car in Salem.

Marion County deputies arrested Dennis Knight Friday night when he was trying to buy a car from a private seller. Deputies said the seller called 911 after Knight became upset during the deal.

Back in January, detectives said Knight and another man tried to rob a man who was staying in a pool house behind a home on Jade Street in Salem. Deputies say one of the suspects shot the victim during a confrontation, but the victim survived.

Knight faces charges of robbery, assault and kidnapping. The other suspect is still on the loose.
