News Release
Shooting Incident - 06/11/21

On June 10, 2021, at approximately 9:43pm, officers from the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety responded to the 2100 block of NW Hawthorne for a report of multiple shots fired from a vehicle. The vehicle was reported to be driving away from the scene, northbound towards Vine Street.  Officers quickly began checking the area for any victims and the suspect vehicle.  Several witnesses were contacted and officers confirmed there were no injuries.  

Witnesses reported the suspect vehicle to be a dark colored sedan, no further information on the suspect vehicle is available at this time.  

GPDPS Detectives responded to the scene to conduct further investigation.  Deputies with the Josephine County Sheriff’s Office also assisted with searching the area for the suspect vehicle.  This investigation is in its early stages with detectives continuing to follow up any leads.  Further information will be relayed as it becomes available.  At this time, there is no indication this is a targeted attack and appears to be random in nature.  We are asking for the public to be aware of this incident and to call and report any suspicious activity. 

Anyone who may have been in the NW area of Grants Pass or with any additional  information is encouraged to call Detective Shali Marshall at 541-450-6260.  Additionally, the Department of Public Safety would like to thank those citizens who called 911 reporting the incident and providing the initial information.
