CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Authorities have made an arrest in a shooting that left one person dead and another wounded in a rural community west of Corvallis.
Benton County Undersheriff Greg Ridler says deputies responded Monday night to a shooting in progress at a home on Tum Tum Road in Blodgett — a community of less than 100 people.
They found a man dead and a woman who had to be taken by rescue helicopter to a Corvallis hospital.
Information from witnesses led to the arrest of 55-year-old Jim Morris. He’s charged with murder, attempted murder, theft and felon in possession of a firearm. A woman, Julie Ann Thurman, was arrested on charges of theft and attempted assault.
The names of the shooting victims have not been released.
