EUGENE, Ore. --- The Lane County Sheriff's Office has identified a suspect involved in a shooting at the 29000 block of Kelso Street in Eugene Friday night, as 55-year-old Darren Woods.

The involved firearm has not been recovered yet, so Woods should be considered armed and dangerous, according to officials.

Woods is a white male, about 5’11” tall and 165 pounds with grey hair and green eyes.

He was last seen driving a white 1998 Dodge 1500 with Oregon license plate 125MEA, officials said.

The truck has a sticker across the back window with black lettering. The wheels on the truck were described to be chrome and the truck is lifted and “sporty.”

At about 10:05 p.m., the Lane County Sheriff’s Office received multiple reports of gunshots from the 29000 block of Kelso Street in Eugene. 

The Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of Oregon State Police and Eugene Police, responded to the location. 

A victim was found with gunshot wounds, transported to the hospital and is currently in stable condition. The victim is a 56-year-old man from Eugene.

The suspect fled the scene before law enforcement arrived, officials said.

Police are asking anyone who sees Woods to call 911.

The shooting is believed to be related to an ongoing feud between the people involved, according to officials. 

Anyone who knows any other relevant information is asked to call 541-682-4141.
