On May 19, at about 10 p.m., three Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) deputies and a Lincoln City Police Officer were in the Otis area investigating a disturbance call.

While at the scene, deputies and officer heard what sounded like gunshots coming from the area of North Fawn Drive. Two units left the disturbance call and began investigating the shots they had just heard.

Three minutes later, WVCC Dispatch received a 911 call from a resident near the shooting location. The 911 caller reported a subject came to his door saying he had been shot. LCSO Deputies went to the location where the shots were reported and began investigating the incident; however, they could not immediately locate the victim.

A LCSO K9 team was called to the scene to assist in finding the still-unknown victim. An LCSO deputy and K9 Nix located the victim in the yard of a nearby property. The victim had not sustained life-threatening injuries.

The Lincoln County Major Crime Team was activated to continue the investigation. The Major Crime Team consists of members from the LCSO, Lincoln City Police Department, Newport Police Department, Toledo Police Department, Oregon State Police, Lincoln County District Attorney’s Office and Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Investigators determined the incident had been a failed robbery attempt that escalated to the point of gunshots being fired at the victim. A search warrant was executed at a residence on North Fawn Drive, which yielded a firearm and other evidence of the firearm having been discharged during the robbery attempt. Three suspects were taken into custody in connection with the incident.
