Person of interest in Grandview Apartments Shooting arrested


UPDATE, Wednesday at 9:30 p.m:

A person of interest in the Grandview apartments shooting Tuesday has been arrested by Medford Police.

Around 4 Wednesday, Medford Police arrested 37-year-old Michael Joseph Gregory Seems in relation to yesterday’s Roberts road shooting. Police have been searching for him since Tuesday night.

Tuesday around 3:30 pm, MPD says a detective spotted Seems as a passenger in a vehicle in Medford and followed the vehicle as it got onto 1-5 northbound. The vehicle tried to allude to a traffic stop in Gold Hill but eventually stopped on Lampman Road near the Rogue River.

Seems ran from the vehicle, down the embankment, and into the river. But was then trapped on the rocks, partially in the river, and remained uncooperative with police officers who were trying to get him to exit the river.

Eventually, officers were able to rescue Seems from the river and assist him up the bank, where he was taken into custody.
