EUGENE, Ore. -- Officers surrounded a South Eugene apartment Saturday afternoon after a woman told emergency staff she'd been shot during a domestic dispute, Eugene Police said.

Officials said the shooting suspect, Daniel Garges, 38, of Eugene, was arrested Sunday morning near Gervais after Marion County deputies searched through the night along a rural Marion county road.

The incident started when a woman in her 20's went to the hospital with at least one gunshot wound. Officials said the woman is in stable condition.

Officers were called out to an apartment on Ferry Alley between 18th and 19th Ave. just after 3 p.m. Saturday to try and contact Garges, Eugene Police Sergeant Larry Crompton said.

The sergeant said officers weren't sure if Garges, who was considered armed and dangerous, was inside when they surrounded the apartment. As a precaution, a SWAT and Crisis Negotiation Team responded to the apartment as officers closed off a square-block radius across from South Eugene High School.

Police entered the apartment on Ferry Alley late Saturday night after filing a search warrant.

Ferry Alley between 18th and 19th Ave. was closed for nearly 9 hours while officers handled the incident.

Marion County Deputies also started a search near Gervais, Ore. Saturday night after getting reports that Garges' vehicle might have been spotted in the area.  |  Read more
