(SALEM) - Marion County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a 911 call of a home invasion robbery attempt that turned into a shooting early this morning.
The 911 caller reported that two men were arguing with the victim in the rear yard of a home in the 4000 block of Jade Street NE, in Salem.
Deputies arrived within minutes of the 8:07am call and found the victim, an adult male, suffering from a serious gunshot wound. The victim, whose name is not being released at this time, was transported to Salem Hospital by Medics. We have no current information on his condition.
The preliminary investigation revealed that the victim stays in a small guest cottage that is a separate building located at the rear of the property. The shooting occurred near this cottage.
Two armed male suspects accosted the victim at the cottage and demanded money. A scuffle ensued and the victim was shot by the suspect during this confrontation.

After the shooting, the suspects drove away in a smaller model bright red pick up truck with a black canopy. The getaway car had been parked in a neighboring apartment complex and was last seen westbound on Jade Street NE, toward Lancaster Drive NE.
Detectives were able to speak the victim briefly before he was transported, but at this time, it is unknown if anything was taken during the incident.
The investigation is on-going at this time. Witness statements are being taken, and a search warrant is being obtaining to assist in the investigation. Detectives from the MCSO Criminal Investigation Unit are handling the case. The 911 tape of the call is not available at this time.
No information is available on the type of weapon used by the suspect, the number of shots fired or the wounds suffered by the victim. Once the victim's family has been notified, his identification will be released.
