WHITE CITY, Ore. -- Detectives are investigating an officer-involved shooting that happened Tuesday night in the parking lot of a Dairy Queen along Highway 62.
The Jackson County Sheriff's Office said that deputies acted on a tip from Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement task force (MADGE) regarding an armed and wanted subject possibly in possession of a large amount of drugs.

The man was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Jackson County Sheriff's Office says a firearm that was in the suspect's possession was found at the scene.
"The suspect has been identified. However, his name, as well the names of the involved deputies will not be released at this time," JCSO said. "The case remains under investigation."
The wounded suspect's condition is unknown at this time.
