KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Two men have been arrested in connection with a shooting at Eagle Ridge County Park northwest of Klamath Falls that left a woman camping there injured, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded to the reported shooting in the early hours of July 2, learning that a woman camping there while on a trip had been attacked by at least one man in a pickup truck. The man reportedly fired multiple rounds into her vehicle, showering her with broken glass, before leaving the area.

On Wednesday, Klamath County Sheriff's Office deputies and officers with Klamath Falls Police arrested two man believed responsible for the attack.

The agency said that Geoffrey Craig Seymour II "intentionally, and with extreme indifference to the value of human life, discharged multiple rounds at a woman, unknown to him, sleeping in her vehicle on Eagle Ridge Rd."

"This attack was unprovoked and the victim sustained minor injuries from broken glass as well as from a round that grazed the back of her neck," KCSO continued.

Another man, Dillon Eugene Oden, is suspected of helping Seymour dispose of the gun used in the attempted murder. Both men are felons and are barred from owning or possessing firearms.

KCSO said that detectives worked with Klamath Falls Police and a deputy working under a U.S. Forest Service patrol contract developed the leads that brought about Wednesday's arrests.

“This is great example of the teamwork we have here in the Klamath Basin," said Sheriff Chris Kaber. "Our agencies quickly came together and shared information that allowed these two dangerous individuals to be taken into custody before anyone else was hurt.”

Both men have been lodged at the Klamath County Jail. Seymour was charged with attempted murder, unlawful use of a weapon, felon in possession of a weapon, pointing a firearm at another, and a parole violation. Oden was charged with felon in possession of a weapon, tampering with evidence, and a parole violation.
