SWEET HOME — A 64-year-old Sweet Home resident was arrested at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday after allegedly shooting another man in the area of 49th Avenue and Long Street. 

David Charles Johnson was charged in Linn County Circuit Court on Wednesday afternoon with second-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon. 

According to police reports, Sweet Home officers and deputies from the Linn County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene on Tuesday night, where they found Grady Daniel Nading, a victim of a gunshot wound. Medics with Sweet Home Fire & Ambulance transported Nading to the Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital, where he was treated and released.

No one else was injured.

Johnson allegedly threatened family members of Nading with a knife just before this incident. Nading reportedly went to Johnson’s residence to confront him and Nading presented a baseball bat.

Johnson reportedly fired three shots with a handgun, while Nading was outside on the street. Nading was struck in the shoulder by one of the bullets.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor.

Oregon's online court database didn't list a defense attorney for Johnson late Wednesday afternoon.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to call SHPD Detective Keenan Martin at 541-367-5181.
