MARION COUNTY — A 77-year-old rural Salem man is in the Marion County Jail following his arrest Thursday for allegedly shooting his grandson.
According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Stacy Dean Milburn allegedly fired approximately six shots at his 19-year-old grandson Devon Milburn, outside his home on Scout Road.
