WHITE CITY, Ore.-- A 36-year-old man suspected to have broken into a vehicle parked in the Agate Road Parking lot Wednesday morning around 7:50 a.m. on the Denman Game Reserve was shot by duck hunters who owned the car, according to a press release by the Jackson County Sheriff's Office.
The press release says the duck hunters confronted the man after they found him breaking into the car, but the suspect took off with stolen property on bicycle. One of the hunters fired a 12 gauge shotgun at the man, striking him with several shotgun pellets.
The man was transported to a local hospital to be treated for his injuries.
No arrests have been made and the case is under investigation.
