GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety says a man is in the Josephine County Jail under Assault 4 and Menacing charges after officers say he forced his way into his ex-girlfriend's house and threatened her.
Officers say on March 11, 2019 around 12:55 a.m. they responded to a 911 call at a home on Rogue River Highway. The female caller said her ex-boyfriend had entered her home and threatened her previously. Officers say that while the woman was on the phone with 911, a gun shot was heard by operators.
Officers say they found Michael Lee Fouch in the driveway with a single gunshot wound to his groin area. Fouch was taken to Three Rivers Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
An investigation revealed that Fouch had made threats before he arrived at the house. They say he forced his way into a bedroom where the woman was hiding with her young son, causing her to fear for her safety. Officers say that's when the gunshot was fired by the woman, hitting Fouch and causing him to flee.
This case is still under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety at (541) 450-6260.
