Shots fired into restaurants; police still have no answers

Medford, Ore., — Medford Police are still searching for answers, after two shootings, at two separate Medford restaurants over the weekend.

The first shooting happened around 7 p.m Saturday night.

Someone shot a window at Noho’s Hawaiian Cafe, while dozens of people were inside eating dinner.

Then just 15 minutes later, police received a similar call from Jimmy John’s at the Medford Center.

Police believe the shots likely came from a car.

But without surveillance footage, or other leads, they don’t know much else.

“We’re still unsure what kind of weapon was used, we believe maybe it was a high powered pellet gun or bb gun, we didn’t find any evidence at the scene that would lead us to believe it was a fire arm.” said Lieutenant Kerry Curtis.

Curtis says it’s likely the bullet disintegrated upon contact with the glass, and that’s why they can’t find anything.

Medford Police are asking for the public’s help tonight in finding answers, if you have any information about either of the shootings, give them a call.
