Yesterday afternoon, the Lane County Sheriff’s Office received a phone call from a female claiming to have been shot at a residence in the 24000 block of Forest Ct. in Veneta. The female stated that her ex-boyfriend shot her and she believed he was still inside the house.
Upon arrival deputies worked quickly to render emergency aid to the injured female. They located her on the front porch of the residence with multiple gunshot wounds. Deputies evacuated her from the porch and into the hands of paramedics. She was transported to an area hospital for treatment.
Later in the evening, deputies located a deceased male inside of the residence. The male had injuries consistent with what appeared to be a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The female victim remains at an area hospital where her condition is described as critical, but stable. No additional information is available at this time.
