Around 4:24 a.m., March 26, Central Lane 911 began receiving reports of shots fired near the 2600 block of Edison Street. Subsequently, a person in an apartment in the 2600 block of Edison reported a female in her 30s had been shot. Responding Eugene Police received information a man, later identified as Bryan Douglas Couch, age 47, a neighbor of the woman shot, had been shooting a firearm from inside the residence where he lives with his parents.
