Curry County sheriff’s deputies responded to Curry General Hospital on the report two men had arrived with gunshot wounds shortly before 4 a.m. March 30.

According to Sheriff John Ward, Austin Williams of Gold Beach and Taylor Bright of Grants Pass, both 20 years old, had been camping at Oak Flat Campground in Agness, about 35 miles east of Gold Beach, when Glen Remy, 22, of Gold Beach shot them.

Williams was shot in his left arm and Bright in his foot; neither injury was life-threatening.

The two told deputies that Remy left the campground and crashed his vehicle off the side of Agness Road a few miles west of that community, according to a press release from Ward.

Emergency dispatchers sent the sheriff, patrol captain, sargeant and several deputies to the hospital, while others were summoned to the Agness area.

Deputies located Remy near his vehicle about 10 miles west of Agness and took him into custody without incident. His vehicle was seized and towed to a secure area where deputies intended to apply for a search warrant to look for evidence of the crime.

Deputies also went to the Oak Flat Campground to investigate the scene and speak with

any witnesses.

Remy was transported to the Curry County Jail; the District Attorney’s Office charged him with second- and third-degree assault, unlawful possession of a firearm and carrying a concealed weapon; and two charges each of fourth-degree assault and reckless endangering another person.

The Curry County Sheriff’s Office is continuing the investigation as to what led up to the

event.
