BOARDMAN — A man found with a gunshot wound last week in Morrow County has been released from the hospital.
Kyle Ulrich, 47, told the East Oregonian he was discharged from Good Shepherd Medical Center on Thursday. The hospital confirmed he is no longer a patient.
Oregon State Police reported they responded to Love’s Travel Stop near exit 159 on Interstate 84 on the morning of Dec. 21 for a report of a man in a private vehicle with a single gunshot wound. The caller reported that Ulrich, injured, had flagged them down a few miles away and they had transported him to the truck stop before calling 9-1-1.
Ulrich told police that he had been kidnapped in another part of the state and held captive in an unknown location for several days before being taken to Morrow County and shot. According to information provided by OSP on Friday, detectives are still investigating the case and trying to substantiate those claims.
They do not believe there is a threat to the general public.
