An Oregon man was kidnapped, robbed and shot early Wednesday morning in Vancouver, prompting a police investigation.

Police and paramedics were dispatched to Kadow’s Marina at 10612 N.W. Lower River Road around 4:30 a.m., according to emergency dispatch logs.

Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman Kim Kapp said a man was knocking on doors looking for help. He was sent to the hospital with gunshot wounds above the shoulder blade and through each hand. He also suffered a grazing gunshot wound to the head.

His injuries do not appear to be life-threatening, Kapp said.

Detectives believe the man had gone to “a location” in east Vancouver, where he was kidnapped, and then brought to Vancouver Lake Park, robbed and shot, Kapp said.

The suspect fled in the victim’s vehicle, a black 2012 Nissan Sentra with temporary Oregon plates in the window and license plate frames from Beaverton Nissan.

According to Kapp, the man walked from the park through a field to the marina and asked for help from a resident.

The victim, whose name was not released, was listed in satisfactory condition at the hospital, Kapp said.

No suspect information was available early in the morning because the man was rushed to the hospital for treatment. Kapp said there weren’t any updates on suspect information in the early afternoon, or on the type of firearm used in the crime.

Detectives do not believe the suspect is a threat to the general public at this time.

Anyone with information on the stolen vehicle or incident should call Vancouver police at 487-7355. If the information is urgent, people can call 911, Kapp said.
