A Grant County Sheriff’s Office corrections deputy sustained a ricochet wound last week.
Deputy Samuel Stinnett was struck in the left side of the chest by a small piece of bullet shrapnel that ricocheted off a steel target plate, according to Oregon State Police. Stinnett was shooting with another deputy about 3 p.m. on Thursday, May 26.
Stinnett was taken to Blue Mountain Hospital by the other deputy and was treated and released with a non life-threatening puncture wound. The incident was not found to be criminal in nature.
