Authorities say a 5-year-old girl has been killed and a woman wounded in Grants Pass after an assault rifle went off at an apartment on NW "C" Street, firing a burst through the ceiling. Police say a 30-year-old man was arrested Thursday night after 9 p.m. on charges of manslaughter, assault and illegal possession of a machine gun. Police described Jon Andrew Meyer Jr. as a transient. A statement said he was in a downstairs room of an apartment when the weapon went off, and the girl and the woman were upstairs in the same apartment. The victims were not immediately identified. A neighbor, Chris Mehl, told The Grants Pass Daily Courier he heard a gunshot, then a rapid firing.
