[ARCHIVED] Man arrested after discharging gun at apartment

At 4:03 this morning, June 8, Eugene Police officers responded to an apartment at 1180 Willamette Street, after reports that shots had been fired at the location. Security officers at the location reported to arriving police units that at least two individuals had left the involved apartment after hearing the shot and reported at least one man was still inside. Officers were setting up around the apartment when the man who was still in the apartment, and who was later found to have discharged a firearm to the door, armed with a knife.

Officers took the man into custody without incident and identified him as , Kyle Reid Sigetich, age 21, of Eugene. They then searched the apartment for potential victims. Inside officers found no victims but did find evidence a handgun had been fired. During the investigation, it was found that Sigetich and another friend had been out and then when they returned to the apartment they found a third friend asleep on the couch. For an unknown reason Sigetich retrieved his handgun from his bedroom, and pointed it at the man who had been sleeping on the couch. When another male friend went to pull the gun away from Sigetich, a single round fired into the TV stand, near the general area of the man who had been sleeping. All the involved were in their 20s.

Sigetich was charged with Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and two counts of Reckless Endangering.
