MONROE, Ore. (AP) - A Monroe-area woman who was struck by two stray bullets in April 2014 has filed a lawsuit against the man who shot her while he was target shooting.

The Corvallis Gazette-Times reports (https://is.gd/ZgNhFL ) that Gale Fogelstrom in February filed a lawsuit in Lane County Circuit Court seeking $2.5 million from Jeffrey Fields, of Monroe.

The lawsuit accuses Fields of acting negligently when he shot her while target shooting at Dawson Timber Services in Monroe. Fogelstrom was shot in the lower back and buttocks while walking about a half-mile from her house to pick up a newspaper.

Attorney Bradley Sands is representing Fields. He declined to comment on the case.

Fields was convicted in May 2015 of misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree assault and recklessly endangering another person.
