MEDFORD, Ore. — Though the details are few, the Medford Police Department (MPD) is hoping that the public can help them track down the suspect in an drive-by shooting that occurred around 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 24.

No one was harmed in the shooting, but multiple people heard or saw a vehicle driving northbound on Biddle Road, with someone firing a handgun out of the passenger-side window.

The targets seemed to be unoccupied businesses, if the shooting wasn't completely indescriminate. One bullet hit Kelly's Automotive in the 2900-block of Biddle Road, causing damage to the building. No one was inside at the time of the shooting.

MPD believe the same person fired shots near Medford Center and Royal Avenue around the same time, with no damage or injuries reported.

The vehicle [shown in surveillance footage above] is believed to be an older-model Subaru Forester-type sedan or wagon, two-toned.
