WHITE CITY, Ore. – Police arrested a man in connection with a shooting at a White City mobile home park Friday.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said just after midnight on June 5, there was a verbal altercation near a mobile home park on the corner of 25th Street and Avenue C.

According to detectives, a 34-year-old woman left the altercation in a red Honda Civic. She was chased by a black Ford Fusion which crashed into the rear of the Civic and the intersection of Division Road and Falcon Street.

The black car was later found empty a short distance away.

While deputies were responding to the crash, they heard gunshots in the area of the mobile home park. When they arrived at the scene, a 33-year-old man was found with a gunshot wound to his foot. The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment.

23-year-old Andres Zavala Nuno, a resident of the mobile home park, was arrested for various charges related to the shooting.
