One man dead after western Oregon triple shooting

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) — Police in the western Oregon city of Springfield say one man has died of his injuries after a triple shooting at an apartment complex Saturday evening.

Police say 23-year-old Jordan Wyatt Ledbetter has been arrested and charged with murder and assault in connection with the shooting. Springfield police Lt. Scott McKee says Ledbetter and at least four others were at a social gathering at Ledbetter’s apartment when the shooting occurred.

When police arrived, they found one man shot in the chest and another shot in the arm at the base of the stairs leading to the apartment. A third victim who had been shot in the neck had already fled the scene to seek help.

The man who was shot in the chest later died; police did not release the victims’ names Sunday.
