An investigation team is looking into reports that an officer shot a person in Cottage Grove Saturday night, the Lane County District Attorney said.
District Attorney Alex Gardner said the person was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Agencies from across the county closed down the area around Highway 99 and Quincy Avenue at around 8:30 p.m. after getting reports that shots were fired near the train tracks near Quincy Ave and South 6th Street.
A 27-year-old Springfield man was shot multiple times in the Gateway Village Apartments early Sunday morning, the Springfield Police Department said.
Officers were called out to the hospital at around 1:50 a.m. Sunday after the man arrived at Riverbend for treatment. They talked with the man and learned the shooting took place in an apartment building parking lot at 3255 Gateway Boulevard.
A car chase through Springfield ended Thursday night with an intoxicated driver crashing his Camaro into a cement porch and running from officers on foot, Springfield Police said.
Law enforcement surrounded the neighborhood around S 34th Street and a K-9 unit captured the suspect, later identified by police as 32-year-old Gustabo Moreno a short time later.
The officer reports that the chase ended when Moreno jumped from the moving car just before crashing into a cement porch on S. 34th Street.
One officer kept driving after the suspect while another got out of the patrol car to chase Moreno. The driving officer accidentally ran over the other officer's foot, Springfield Police Sergeant Charboneau said.
Sgt. Charboneau said Moreno was cited for DUII, reckless driving and hit & run before being taken to the hospital for bites he received in the K9 capture.
One of Eugene's favorite spash spots is closed for the last weekend of summer as crews work to fix a broken water pipe. Amazon Pool staff announced they were closed for repairs Saturday, and managers expect the job to take a couple days.
Eugene Police said they’ve started an undercover social media sting operation to catch sexual predators, and their results are eye-opening.
Detectives posted on a social media site as an underage teen on Friday morning. Within 3 hours they received 85 texts from different numbers, all from people hoping to meet up with who they thought was a young female.
“If they're responding to these ads, they've done it before. That's the worry. That there's children being victimized and we're just scratching the surface,” said Sgt. McKee.
