Klamath Falls Police have arrested a teenager in connection with the shooting of a woman who was found early Saturday morning on the bike path near Foothills Boulevard and Homedale Road.
Officers say the suspect is 18-year old Brittain McAuliffe. He was one of two teens who escaped from the Riverbend Youth Correctional Facility in LaGrande back in June. One of the escapees was captured in July.
The shooting victim was taken to OHSU in Portland to be treated for her injuries… her condition isn’t known.
McAuliffe was booked into the Klamath County jail early Monday morning. He’s being held on first degree assault and weapons charges.
Note: An earlier published version of the story incorrectly reported that the suspect was arrested Tuesday morning.
This article says Tuesday morning but it was Monday morning. It’s not Tuesday until tomorrow.
Another great job by local police!
Assault?! Are you kidding me! Since when is shooting someone in the face with a shotgun not at least an attempted murder charge! This woman is a friend of mine and she was dumped like garbage because he thought she was dead. Assault? Im in shock…
