GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- Rural Metro Fire says a driver is dead from an apparent gunshot wound.

Around 7:03 p.m. on June 16, 2018 crews say Rural Metro Fire, AMR-Josephine County and Grants Pass Department of Public Safety responded to a single car crash on Redwood Hwy at Dawn Drive. This is just West of Rogue Community College.

Initially, Rural Metro Fire says crews were staged away because shots were fired at the scene of the crash. Crews say once the scene was cleared, they determined the driver died from a gunshot wound.

Further information and details are being referred to OSP once their investigation has been completed.

This is an ongoing investigation and we will continue to bring you updates as we get them.
