19-year-old arrested after mill caretaker shot with shotgun
LANE COUNTY, Ore. -- Deputies arrested a 19-year-old Eugene woman Wednesday after they say she admitted to shooting a man at a Cottage Grove mill the night before, the Lane County Sheriff's Office said.
Detectives said they interviewed Emily Sattig, 19, Wednesday night after learning she knew the 59-year-old that was shot at the mill on Tuesday.
During the interview Sattig admitted she had gone to the mill armed with a shotgun intending to shoot and kill the 59-year-old property caretaker for the mill, officials said. She went on to tell detectives that she and the victim had been having an ongoing disagreement.
Authorities say a call came in to the 911 center at about 10:15 pm from a person saying they had been shot at the Westwood Lumber Company.
LCSO says the property caretaker, a 59-year-old male was approached by a female who requested that the caretaker open a gate.
Sattig told investigators she went up to the man's RV and knocked on the door. When the victim came out and started toward the gate she opened fire on him with the 12 gauge shotgun, sheriff's officials said.
LCSO said the man ran back inside his RV and called police after being hit by pellets from at least one shotgun blast.
The victim's injuries do not appear to be life threatening.
Sattig was charged with attempted murder, assault I and unlawful use of a weapon.
Officials say there is no connection between this shooting and the one that killed two people in Roseburg Tuesday night.
