Fire/Rescue paramedics are enroute to a report of a man who has suffered a gunshot wound while in the mountains just east of Cape Perpetua. Circumstances of the wounding are unknown, however law enforcement is enroute to a meet-up place on 101, mile post 173 which is about 8 miles into Lane County at the Rock Creek Campground.
Newport’s Samaritan PCH reports they have no surgeons on duty, so if the victim requires surgery he should be sent south to Peace Harbor Hospital in Florence for medical treatment.
Hopefully we’ll have more in the morning. SEE ABOVE STORY ON SWAT ACTION.
