White City Shooting Investigation
JCSO Case 20-3046
WHITE CITY, Or. On 021620 at 1719 hours Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to a report of an adult male who was bleeding from his arm, requesting an ambulance in the area of Lakeview Dr. and Merry Lane in White City, Oregon. Deputies arriving at the scene found the injuries were bullet wounds. Shortly after the initial report, deputies were advised that a suspicious vehicle had left the scene at a high speed driving recklessly. The two events were believed to be related.
The investigation revealed that the victim of the shooting and two subjects were inside the victim’s vehicle when he was shot. The vehicle was parked at the intersection of Lakeview and Merry. After the victim was shot, the two subjects fled in their own vehicle.
At about 1740 hours, the suspicious vehicle was located off of Gramercy Rd. Subsequently, two persons of interest were detained. There is no on-going threat to the community.
The victim was transported by Mercy to Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening wounds.
At this time the case remains under investigation. Additional details are expected to be available later today.
