Deputies investigate shooting at Milton-Freewater home


The Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting at Locust Trailer Court just outside Milton-Freewater early this morning.

According to Sheriff Terry Rowan, a 19-year-old woman reported that someone knocked on the door of her home, then fired shots into the trailer.

The shooting took place at 1501 N. Elizabeth St. at about 12:07 a.m., according to dispatch logs.

“No one was injured,” Rowan said, adding there was also an unidentified man in the trailer at the time of the shooting.

Rowan did not release the type of weapon the shooter used, and said no suspects have been identified as yet.

“We have a feeling it’s associated with some gang activity,” Rowan said, adding the shooter may have had another person with him, and he left the area on foot.

Rowan did say deputies have recovered some pieces of evidence from the scene.
