Deputies Investigate Weekend ShootingSalem-News.com
Investigators want to talk to anyone who was in the area of State and Lancaster or has any information regarding this incident.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Deputies in Marion County are investigating a shooting over the weekend that involved a 23-year old Salem man. Lt. Shelia Lorance with the sheriff's office, says a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the neck was brought to the hospital around 7:41 p.m. Saturday.
Lorance says the victim, 23-year old Jeffrey Gorremans of Salem, was with a friend, 22-year old Michael Stoddard of Gresham, who was arrested a short time after their arrival by Salem Police for Carrying a Concealed Weapon.
"Stoddard was found to be in possession of a 9mm semi-automatic handgun that was tucked inside the waistband of his pants," Lorance said.
Deputy Stacy Lucca interviewed Gorremans who said he was a passenger in a vehicle with Stoddard and a male driver who he only knew as Steven.
"He said as they drove down State Street he had his window open when he felt an instant pain in his neck and started bleeding. He said he didn't hear a gun shot but assumed someone had shot into the window from the street. They drove to Salem Hospital and Gorremans was treated for non-life threatening injuries and released."
Lorance says this is an ongoing investigation and if anyone was in the area of State and Lancaster or has any information regarding this incident they are asked to call the Marion County Sheriff's Office at 503 588-5032.
