Vancouver man accused in shooting arraigned on new charges

A Vancouver man accused of shooting his girlfriend in the back of the neck last month at their east Vancouver apartment was arraigned Friday on new charges, including attempted murder.

Logan O. Fouse, 41, pleaded not guilty to second-degree attempted murder and two counts of fourth-degree domestic violence assault. He had previously pleaded not guilty to one charge of first-degree domestic violence assault in Clark County Superior Court.

His trial is scheduled for Jan. 3, but defense attorney Lisa Toth said Friday she’d likely ask to push back the trial.

Fouse’s bail is set at $600,000.

Vancouver police said in court records that the bullet was lodged in the victim’s neck, and she did not have feeling on the left side of her body.

Police were called around 5:30 p.m. Nov. 3 to the Fishers Mill Apartments, 1000 S.E. 160th Ave.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, neighbors reported hearing the couple arguing all day. One neighbor said she heard the woman screaming, then a door slam and a vehicle speeding off. The same neighbor heard the couple arguing again, then a loud noise like something had dropped. Afterward, she heard the woman crying, and an ambulance arrived soon after.

Police said the victim was alert, and she said she did not believe the shooting was an accident, court records state.

Fouse allegedly initially told police the shooting was an accident. He also allegedly said he had a “lapse” before the shooting and could not remember when he pointed the gun at his girlfriend, court records say.

A GoFundMe for the victim and her mother has been created to help with medical bills. To donate, visit https://gofund.me/9e2fb71d.
