ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The Roseburg woman injured in a shooting Monday evening is expected to be okay.

According to court documents, Joshua James Kramer, 32, opened fire on his wife, Belinda, after going to her home to drop off diapers.

The man who owns the home, Doug McKillop, said he and his wife were on their porch of their home just up the road when they heard the shots.

“We heard the shots,” McKillop said. “I said, 'Somebody’s shooting with his pistol,' because I heard five shots rapid fire.”

He then saw emergency vehicles pull onto Downey Avenue and got a call from his daughter, who lives with Belinda.

“About that time, my daughter called me. She said, ‘Get down to the house! Belinda’s been shot!’”

Court documents show Kramer pulled up to the home in a white truck, dropped off those diapers and fired shots at Belinda.

One hit her, shattering her pelvis.

Belinda is now recovering at Riverbend Hospital in Springfield.

The documents say police then pursued Kramer, who changed vehicles to a white Ford Crown Victoria that used to be a police cruiser.

He was eventually pulled over in the Abby’s Pizza parking lot on Diamond Lake Boulevard, where he was taken into custody and admitted to shooting his wife.

Kramer has been charged with two counts of assault, two counts of unlawful use of a weapon, and attempting to elude police.

McKillop said now he’s just working on cleaning up the place.

“Yeah, to try to stop some of the trauma because we didn’t tell our grandkids,” McKillop said. “They’re only 5 and 6 years old. I just said Belinda was hurt.”

Roseburg police said this is still an ongoing investigation.
