Medford Police ask residents to be vigilant as shooting investigations continue

Medford, Ore. – The Medford Police department is increasing their presence in the West Medford neighborhoods that have been targeted in three recent shootings. Police are asking residents to be vigilant, and keep an eye out for anything suspicious.

“People know their neighborhood, they know what looks out of place, and if they see something out of place, gang related or not, definitely call that in,” Lieutenant Mike Budreau said. “We’d rather go check out a big nothing than have to try to piece something together after the fact.”

The first shooting occurred on September 9th around 10 PM, on the 500 block of Edwards Street. Authorities say an occupied house was was the target, however no one was hurt. No suspects have been named in this case.

Police say the next shooting occurred on September 16th, just after 7 PM on the 1000 block of Narregan street. Police say a 2000 white Honda Accord with five people inside pulled into the parking lot of the apartment complex. Authorities say four of the people got out of the car and began confronting others in the area. Police say that’s when Tyler Sandoval, 17, pulled out a gun and began shooting toward the group. The four subjects then got back in the car and left the area. The other suspects were identified as 18 year old Santiago Flores-Loveland, 18 year old La Traveon Deshawn “Trey” Wesley, 17 year old Chino Acuna, and 37 year old Alonzo Lee McBrown. Police are still actively looking for Sandoval and Flores-Loveland; the other suspects have been arrested.

The third shooting occurred on September 20th around around 8 PM on the 800 block of Narregan street. According to police, four subjects were driving around the neighborhood, all wearing dark hoodies. Authorities say when a man gestured to the car, they fired one to two shots at the man, who turned around and ran inside his residence. Police found two different shell casings on scene, and say two different guns were fired. No suspects have been identified in this shooting.

All three shootings remain under investigation. If you see anything suspicious, or have information in any of the shooting cases, you are asked to call police.
