Deputies investigate shooting of Mill City man

Posted: Updated:
LINN COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

Police are investigating a reported shooting of a man, 41, of Mill City according to the Linn County Sheriff’s office.

Deputies attempted to locate the victim around midnight Saturday morning, but he was not cooperative with law enforcement and was avoiding contact.

Later Saturday morning, officials say the Linn County 911 Center received a call saying medics were on their way to a gunshot victim in Lyons, who happened to be the same man they were trying to locate earlier that morning.

Medics treated the man at an area hospital for a non-life threatening injury.

Officials say that the victim and suspect knew each other and there is no reason to believe the public is in danger.
