SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- Springfield authorities say a 27-year-old man shot several times in a Wal-Mart parking lot is expected to survive.

The Eugene Register-Guard reported that two 20-year-old suspects from Cottage Grover were arraigned Monday. The paper did not identify the victim.

Police Sgt. David Lewis said the man has been removed from a hospital's intensive care unit, and "his condition has been upgraded."

Prosecutors charged Anthony James Hillenius with attempted murder, assault and robbery. A second suspect, Cory Lee Michael Monpas, was charged with robbery, assault and attempting to elude.

Lewis said the shooting victim and a second man had agreed to meet the two suspects Saturday in the parking lot to carry out a drug deal.
