Police say they have the man responsible for opening fire at a Grants Pass Shell Station.

In front of a handful of witnesses, investigators from Josephine County say a man opened fire at a Shell gas station killing another man. Police haven't released the names of the suspect or the man who was killed because the investigation is on-going. What we do know is that the two men involved knew each other. After the shooting, a chase took place, spanning from Josephine County to Jackson County. In Central Point, witnesses say police laid spike strips on the road but it's unclear if that stopped the truck. In this video, a witness describes what he saw all of it unfolding in front of his home along Old Stage Road and Scenic Ave.
