Jeremy JoulsohnGRANTS PASS, Ore. — Jeremy Joulsohn, 32, of Grants Pass was arrested by Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers Monday night after he allegedly assaulted one man, pointed a rifle at his wife, and then fired multiple shots east of Grants Pass.

Three OSP troopers responded to shots fired at about 8:30 p.m. in the 4600 block of Rogue River Highway. When they arrived, Joulsohn had already left on foot. Witnesses told OSP troopers that Joulsohn was “upset” with his wife and pointed a loaded rifle at her before a witness and the suspect’s wife grabbed the barrel of the rifle and pointed it in another direction, away from people in the parking lot. Troopers said Joulsohn fired several rounds from the rifle across the parking lot and toward the Highway.

Troopers found Joulsohn at a nearby residence and took him into custody without complications. He is lodged in the Josephine County Jail on charges of Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful use of a Weapon, Menacing, Assault in the Third Degree, and also a Warrant for failure to appear.

The 34-year-old man Joulsohn assaulted was taken to Three Rivers Medical Center and treated for facial injuries.
