Shooting Suspect Indicted

Jon Meyer GRANTS PASS, Ore. — A grand jury indicts a man accused of killing a 5 year-old girl.

A seven person jury indicted Jon Meyer on four offenses. Those charges include manslaughter in the second degree, assault in the third degree, unlawful possession of a machine gun and unlawful possession of methamphetamine.

The Josephine County District Attorney’s office says Meyer fired off what they call a machine gun, into the second floor killing 5 year-old Alysa Bobbit and wounding another woman, 44 year-old Karen Hancock.

The Oregon State Police crime lab and the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety are the main agencies investigating this case but federal investigators could get involved. The possession of a machine is a federal offense but there is no confirmation yet if agencies like the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives will be involved after the case is closed on a state level.

Hancock was in serious condition as News Watch 12 last reported on Wednesday. Oregon Health and Science University is no longer releasing her condition at the hospital.

Meyer is expected to be in court later this month.
