MEDFORD, Ore. — On Tuesday the Medford Police Department (MPD) delivered a brief update on a shooting the day prior that saw two brothers injured — one of them seriously.

"Detectives are continuing to investigate this shooting case, and no arrests have been made," the agency said.

The 22-year-old man who was shot and seriously wounded was taken to Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) in Portland where he remains in critical condition, police said.

"The status of the 15 year old victim is not immediately known but his injuries were not expected to be life threatening," MPD said.

Lieutenant Mike Budreau later said that the boy was released from the hospital on Tuesday.

In earlier statements, police said that the two brothers went to a mobile home at 1500 S Peach Street — apparently attempting to confront a 17-year-old boy with whom they had a running "dispute." They both were able to enter the home before the 17-year-old boy shot them both with a hunting rifle.

On Tuesday, Lt. Budreau said that detectives had confirmed the shooting occurred inside of the mobile home, and that the two brothers had forced entry to the home. He also confirmed that one of the brothers carried a tire iron with him.

"Forced entry, the fact that a weapon was brought to the scene, and that it did occurred inside the residence is important," Lt. Budreau said.

The rifle that the 17-year-old used to shoot the two brothers belonged to his family, and it was already in the home prior to the confrontation, the Lieutenant clarified.

"He didn’t go and get it for that event," Budreau said.

Detectives have finished going over the mobile home where the shooting happened, and are working to collect evidence and gather witness statements. MPD said that the detectives are working closely with the Jackson County District Attorney's Office.

The identities of all parties involved — including the 22-year-old man — have not been released.
