At approximately 12:05p today, ESCO 911 operators received a call of a possible shooting at the Central Point Skate Park. The park is located at 403 S. Fourth Street.
Upon arrival, Central Point Police (CPPD) units immediately locked down the area as there was one confirmed shooting victim.
CPPD Lt Josh Abbott confirmed with Medford Alert that the shooting suspect was not caught and is currently outstanding. Authorities were unable to confirm the make or model of the vehicle that fled the scene, due to only “blurry” pictures and video of the car. Early radio traffic indicated a Subaru Outback-style car with tinted windows was the vehicle possibly involved. An active search is taking place however.
Lt Abbott also reported that the single shooting victim was transported to Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center (ARRMC) and is in stable condition. The victim is believed to be a minor, along with the majority of witnesses.
A number of metro law enforcement agencies have been activated to assist with this investigation and search for the suspect or suspects. Lt Abbott confirmed that the Major Assault Death Investigation Unit or MADIU, was activated.
The Central Point Police released the following information this afternoon.
Members of the Jackson County Major Assault and Death Investigation Unit responded to assist Central Point detectives with the ongoing investigation.
At this point, investigators have confirmed the encounter between the male suspect and male victim was not random, but rather a component of their interaction during a pre-planned meeting at the location. It has been confirmed the suspect fired multiple shots, striking the victim multiple times for which the victim is currently receiving medical treatment. The suspect fled from the scene in an unknown direction.
Medford Alert will continue to monitor this incident and provide updates as they become available.
