Eugene, Ore. – At around 1:26 a.m., Eugene Police officers responded to the area of W. 3rd Avenue and Lawrence Street after a possible gunshot wound was reported.

A person in the area had seen a woman yelling that someone had been shot. The woman was reported to be running towards the railroad tracks nearby. Officers searched the area and located the woman just as she was flagging down a sergeant near W. 2nd and Lincoln Street at the tracks. She led the sergeant to a tent, advising she was helping someone breath. Additional officers arrived and inside the tent they spotted the man, who appeared to be having a medical event, not a gunshot wound.

Medics continued care, the man’s pulse returned and he was transported to a local hospital for treatment. CAHOOTS was dispatched to help the woman. Incident number 23-010621
