GOLD BEACH, Ore. — Two men who survived being shot at a Curry County campground helped lead investigators to the alleged shooter, according to the Curry County Sheriff's Office (CCSO).

Just before 4 a.m. on March 30, the Sheriff's Office received a call from Curry General Hospital, reporting that two men with gunshot wounds had just arrived.

20-year-old Austin Williams of Gold Beach and 20-year-old Taylor Bright of Grants Pass told investigators that they had been at the Oak Flat Camp Ground near Agness when another man shot Williams in the left arm and Bright in the foot.

The men identified the shooter as 22-year-old Glen Remy of Gold Beach, CCSO said. Williams told investigators that Remy had gotten in his vehicle following the shooting and drove away from the campground, only to crash off the side of the Agness Road a few miles west of the town.

While one group of deputies responded to the hospital, another group headed toward Agness. CCSO said that they found Remy near his vehicle about ten miles west of Agness and took him into custody without incident.

"Remy’s vehicle was seized and later towed to a secure area where Deputies intended to apply for a search warrant to look for evidence of the crime," CCSO said. "Deputies also went to the Oak Flat Camp Ground to investigate the scene and speak with any possible witnesses."

Remy was taken to the Curry County Jail and lodged, with the District Attorney leveling charges of Assault in the Second Degree, Assault in the Third Degree, two counts of Assault in the Fourth Degree, two counts of Reckless Endangering Another Person, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, and Carrying a Concealed Weapon.

Hospital staff advised deputies that Williams and Bright's wounds were not life threatening.

CCSO said that it is continuing the investigation into what may have led to the shooting, noting that Remy may face additional charges.
