BANDON, Ore. - A man with a gunshot wound to the head flagged down a motorist for help Tuesday night, and police later arrested a man and charged him with attempted murder.

Daniel Cullen Plymyer, 28, stopped a motorist for help Tuesday around 6:47 p.m. near 1175 SW 4th Street in Bandon, Ore., according to the Coos County District Attorney's Office.

Police responded to Southern Coos Hospital, where Plymyer received treatment before being taken by air ambulance to Oregon Heath and Sciences University in Portland, Ore. He is expected to survive the wound.
