KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — The Klamath County Sheriff's Office says it is investigating a case of attempted murder after a traveler was fired upon while camping northwest of Klamath Falls.

Deputies responded to a call of "shots fired" around 2:30 a.m. on Thursday morning near the 17000-block of Eagle Ridge Road, at Eagle Ridge County Park along the shores of Upper Klamath Lake.

When deputies arrived, a woman said that she had been camping in the area when several men drove up in a pickup truck. When the woman refused to get out of her car, one of the men fired at her with a handgun.

The woman was injured in the shower of broken window glass, and was later treated for her injuries.

"Deputies searched the area and were unable to locate any suspects, however the investigation is ongoing at this time," the Sheriff's Office said. "Very little descriptive information of the suspects or their pickup is available and should more information be developed the public will be made aware."

The agency said that the attack appeared to be of a "random nature," and there was no sign that the victim or the suspects knew one another. The woman had been traveling from Portland to Reno and was only staying in the area temporarily.

"While this incident remains under investigation the Klamath County Sheriff’s Office wishes to remind people this holiday weekend to be aware of their surroundings, beware of others camping near you, secure vehicles and belongings," the agency said.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Klamath County Sheriff's Office tip line at 541-850-5380.
