Man shot in confrontation with police in Reedsport

REEDSPORT (AP) — Police say a man was shot in an exchange of gunfire with police at a mobile home park off U.S. Highway 101 in Reedsport.

State Police spokesman Gregg Hastings says officers from the Douglas County sheriff’s office and Reedsport police were called to the home at about 12:30 p.m. Thursday on a report of a disturbance and were confronted by a man with a gun.

He says the man was shot at least once by a law enforcement officer and taken to a hospital. The officers were unhurt.

Authorities did not release the names of the man or the police officers involved.

The shooting was being investigated by the Douglas County Major Crimes Team, led by the Oregon State Police Criminal Investigations Division.
