A man has been charged with attempted murder after he allegedly shot an Uber Eats driver in Cottage Grove Tuesday.

According to the Cottage Grove Police Department, Otis Donnell Shipp turned himself into jail on Wednesday in relation to the shooting. He has since been charged in Washington County with second-degree attempted murder.

At around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, Cottage Grove police responded to a report of a shooting victim at a gas station located at 8490 East Point Douglas Road.

Officers learned that the victim had been shot at a nearby home while making a delivery for Uber Eats, before he drove himself to the gas station.

Evidence was later collected from a residence on the 8700 block of Ironwood Avenue, where officers determined the shooting took place. The suspect had reportedly fled the scene before the call to police.
