Shooting injures one in rural Gaston Friday night

One person was injured in a shooting at a rural Gaston residence Friday night. An arrest has not been made. The investigation is ongoing.

The Yamhill County Sheriff's Office gave this account:

About 9:30 p.m., deputies were dispatched to a shooting at 2300 N.W. Country Lane.  A resident of that address, 34 year old Joshua Dustin Reynolds, called 911 to report he had just shot someone at that location.  He secured his firearm and waited for law enforcement to respond.  

The male who had been shot fled the scene and was transported by private vehicle to the City of Gaston. He was identified as 41 year old Robert James Terry, also of  rural Gaston.

Shot one time, Terry was eventually transported via Life Flight helicopter to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

It appears that Reynolds and Terry are known to each other and there is no danger to the public.

The sheriff's office was assisted by the Yamhill Police Department, Oregon State Police and Washington County Sheriff's Office.



In my mind Gaston is the last bastion of the old west. If ever there was an outlaw seeking a place to hide out, you'd imagine that somehow they'd end up in Gaston. Guns and those that use them are quite proliferate in Gaston and as such it is not surprising that there are shootings that take place. I'm surprised that there's not more of them. I make an appointment to try and avoid Gaston, but when I do have to travel through there on highway 47 I do so quickly....


Gaston is creepy.
