A Klamath Falls man has been arrested for attempted murder following a shooting downtown Sunday night.

Robert Brady Alan Smith, 29, was arrested early Monday morning after a shooting shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday on the 300 block of South Fifth Street.

Smith allegedly fired a .40-caliber handgun six times out the driver’s window of his vehicle and struck a man in the back and legs. The victim, 25, survived and was listed in stable condition Monday.

Three other adults were in the line of fire, said police, while Smith’s two children, ages 3 and 1, were also in the vehicle. Smith fled the scene and, when contacted by police, allegedly admitted to the shooting.

Smith appeared in court Monday charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault and four counts of attempted aggravated murder. Attorney Phil Studenberg was appointed to represent Smith and his next scheduled court date is June 25.

If convicted, Smith faces at least 10 years in prison. He was ordered held on $120,000 bail.

Smith’s only other arrest in Oregon was in 2012 in Lake County while he was a resident of Susanville, Calif. He was convicted of illegally possessing less than an ounce of marijuana and was fined $440.
