At about 3:30 pm yesterday, an Oregon City man called 9-1-1 and told dispatch he had been shot by his roommate, 31-year-old Daniel Craig Wiese, inside their apartment at the Mt. View Apartments, 1840 Molalla Ave. Officers arrived a short time later. We were able to determine the victim was in a bedroom.
