Teen arrested in connection with shooting that injured one


Salem, Ore. — Yesterday, October 3, Salem Police detectives arrested a 16-year-old juvenile on several charges related to a shooting incident on September 27. 

At approximately 3:30 p.m. that Thursday afternoon, police officers responded to the area of Marion and 13th STS NE after multiple callers reported the sound of gunfire. 

Detectives from the Felony Crimes and Strategic Investigations Units assisted with canvassing the area and collecting evidence. Initially, no reports of injuries or damages were received; however, several hours after the shooting, officers contacted a juvenile victim at Salem Health. The adolescent sought medical treatment at the hospital for a non-life-threatening gunshot injury.

The investigation ultimately led to the arrest of a male teenager who was lodged at the Marion County Juvenile Detention Center on the following charges:

  • Assault in the second degree
  • Unlawful use of a weapon
  • Conspiracy, assault in the second degree
  • Conspiracy, unlawful use of a weapon

The Salem Police Department does not release the names of minors involved in criminal investigations.

All further inquiries concerning this case should be directed to the Marion County District Attorney’s Office.
