GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Oregon State Police says that a woman is dead and a man in custody after a shooting in Josephine County sometime on Friday.
Grants Pass Police responded to Three Rivers Medical Center on Friday after reports of a woman with a gunshot wound. Hospital staff tried to revive the victim, but she was later pronounced dead.
Oregon State Police identified the woman as 43-year-old Julie Names of Josephine County. The man who drove Names to the hospital, identified as 41-year-old Travis Albins, was detained and interviewed after OSP's Major Crime Team responded.
Albins was later arrested and charged with Unlawful use of a Weapon and Manslaughter I.
According to court documents, Albins was released on bail earlier this week pending future hearings on a Menacing charge, after Albins allegedly threatened his 67-year-old mother. The release agreement stipulated that he could not possess a gun or ammunition.
In April of 2019, Albins allegedly "grabbed and twisted" Names' arm and tried to hit her with his vehicle, both in the presence of her child. The charges in this case were dismissed after the District Attorney's office said that it could not locate "the essential witnesses."
Both of these cases prior cases constituted domestic violence, according to the court records.
This is a developing story, and will be updated with more details as they emerge.
