(SALEM) - A man was shot by deputies this morning south of Salem in Turner, Oregon. According to initial reports relayed through Don Thomson, the spokesman for the Marion County Sheriff, it began when a man was observed sitting in a red Chevy Nova on the Illahee Bridge near Enchanted Forest.
Deputies were called out to the location shortly after 7:00 a.m. report approaching the man, engaging in a confrontation, and shooting the man.
The names of the deputies and the man who was shot have not yet been released.
It is the second shooting this week for Marion County deputies. From what information has been released, it appears both men shot by deputies were unarmed, however there are no statements from either the Sheriff's office or the District Attorney verifying whether the men who were shot carried weapons. Police agencies are generally quick to note when a suspect involved in a shooting was also armed.
In this case, the suspect did not appear to have life-threatening injuries, Thomson said.
The Illahe Bridge where the incident occurred, is located near the intersection of Cloverdale and Enchanted Way.
