WHITE CITY, Ore. — Deputies are looking for more information and two potential suspects in a reported shooting at a playground near the White City library on Saturday, according to the Jackson County Sheriff's Office (JCSO).
The report came in just after 1:34 a.m., when a 26-year-old man called 911 claiming that he'd been shot. When deputies arrived at the scene, they found a man with a "minor graze wound" on his torso, seemingly from a small-caliber round, and a cut on his arm.
JCSO says that they are unsure how much time passed between the shooting and the 911 call, and the victim was unable to provide many details. He reportedly described a verbal and physical fight between himself and two Hispanic men at the playgroun before he was shot.
The victim said that the two men left on foot, headed north through a field toward the mobile home park at 2622 Falcon Street. He described one of the men as about 25 years old with slick, black hair and full bear, wearing a puffy jacket. The second man was described as wearing a black sweatshirt.
Deputies believe other people may have been present during or just before the incident. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the JCSO tip line at (541) 774-8333. Refer to case #18-16798.
