GRANTS PASS, Ore. — A local man wanted for murder was taken into custody on Wednesday, according to Oregon State Police.

Detectives with Oregon State Police were searching for 56-year-old Bret Alan Hagenno last week following a fatal shooting that happened west of Grants Pass on June 24. Hagenno was believed to be "armed and dangerous."

Officers responded to the area of Pinecrest Drive and Tiffany Way around 4 p.m. that day to investigate a reported shooting. According to OSP, 55-year-old Theodore Homer Robison had been shot several times and was found dead at the scene.

Hagenno was arrested in January after being pulled over by a Josephine County Sheriff's Office deputy. According to a probably cause statement, the deputy found during the course of the traffic stop that there was a warrant out for Hagenno's arrest on heroin possession and delivery charges.

During the stop, the arresting officer noted that Hagenno, a convicted felon, confessed to having a handgun in his possession that was later found to be stolen. The deputy also reported finding four grams of heroin during a search. This case remains open pending trial, and hearings scheduled during the month of June were postponed at the request of Hagenno's lawyer.

As of 5 p.m. on Wednesday, OSP could not provide further information on the murder case or the circumstances of Hagenno's arrest. This is a developing story and will be updated with more details as they emerge.
