BOARDMAN, Ore. -- Oregon State Police is investigating a shooting and kidnapping in Morrow County. In a statement, OSP says multiple law enforcement agencies responded to a call of a man suffering from a gunshot wound at Love's Truck Stop near exit 159. When investigators arrived, they say they found a 48-year-old male from Eugene inside a vehicle with a gunshot wound. The victim was taken to the hospital.
