A 5-year-old girl died after she was shot by a man in a Grants Pass apartment Thursday night.
Grants Pass police arrested 30-year-old Jon Meyer Jr., whom they described as a transient, in connection with the girl's death. He's being held on charges of second-degree manslaughter, third-degree assault and unlawful possession of a machine gun.
Officers first responded to the report of shots fired at 1017 NW C St. around 9 p.m.
Police and firefighters quickly found the 5-year-old girl, began to treat her gunshot wounds, and then rushed her to Three Rivers Hospital by ambulance. She died a short time later.
A second victim, a 44-year-old woman, also suffered gunshot wounds. She is now in stable condition at Three Rivers Hospital.
Police said their investigation showed Meyer fired his gun from the downstairs portion of the apartment. The two victims were in the upper level of the same apartment when they were shot.
