GOLD HILL, Ore. -- Pamela Cordonier has been living near Rogue River Highway for four years. When she heard the gunshots on Thursday night she had absolutely no idea what was going on.

The first thing Cordonier heard were the officers giving orders.

"It sounded like it was coming from a bullhorn," Cordonier said. "'Get your hands up.'"

Cordonier lives less than a one minute drive from where the shooting happened. 

"It's a little scary that things like that happen," Cordonier said. "Especially in this rural of an area. You don't expect those things."

Cordonier was sitting on her patio when she heard the gunshots. With that, she decided to call it a night — going around to make sure that the doors and the windows were locked. 

"You don't know if someone's going to be running up to your door or in your yard and trying to get in your house," Cordonier said. 

Medford Police, the Jackson County Sheriff's Office, and Oregon State Police were out all night and into this morning investigating the shooting. Even though this happened so close to home, Cordonier isn't too scared. 

"I feel safe in here," Cordonier said.
