MEDFORD, Ore. — Several weeks after a 22-year-old man was shot and wounded during an altercation in Medford, the Medford Police Department (MPD) says that it has arrested the suspect believed to have pulled the trigger.
The investigation began on March 14 when the 22-year-old (unidentified) victim was taken to a local hospital with gunshot wounds. Police later found that the victim had been in an argument with 24-year-old Mykalisteyr Greene, AKA Felix Novac, when Greene opened fire.
MPD then put out Greene's picture, warning the public that he was considered "armed and dangerous." The agency also reported that Greene was known to frequent the Medford area, and "is a known heroin addict."
Just after 12:30 a.m. on Friday, officers pulled over a vehicle on Alba Drive in Medford. They found Greene sitting in the passenger's seat.
MPD said that Greene was interviewed and then taken to jail, charged with attempted murder, assault in the first degree, and unlawful use of a weapon. Meanwhile, the alleged victim is said to be recovering from his single gunshot wound at home, having been released from the hospital since the initial shooting.
"Thanks to all that helped spread the word, we are happy to have Greene in custody," MPD said in a Facebook post.
