A man was arrested and charged with second-degree attempted murder after police say he shot his son Wednesday night southeast Salem and fled to the Albany area.
Timothy Quantrell Brewer Sr., 42, of Salem was charged with second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, unlawful use of a firearm and possessing a firearm as a felon, the Salem Police Department said in a news release Thursday afternoon.
Around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, Salem officers responded to a call reporting a person with a gunshot wound at an apartment in the 5500 block of Woodside Drive Southeast.
Police found his son, Timothy Quantrell Brewer Jr., with a gunshot wound, according to the news release. Paramedics transported the son to Salem Hospital, where he is was on a life-support system as of Thursday afternoon.
Salem detectives determined "a dispute" between the two resulted in Brewer Sr. shooting Brewer Jr. before fleeing.
The news release said Brewer Sr. was currently lodged at the Marion County Jail and due to be arraigned Friday at 2:30 p.m. at the Marion County Circuit Court Annex, though the jail's roster didn't list him as being in custody around 5 p.m. Thursday.
