MADRAS, OR -- (08/28/18) Detectives continue to search for the suspect they believe was involved in a shooting at the Topps Trailer Court in Madras, early Monday. "When the deputies responded, they found the victim outside and he had multiple gunshot wounds to the lower part of his body," Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins tells KBND News, "We had applied a couple of tourniquets until the ambulance arrived."
The victim has not been identified and is being treated at St. Charles Bend. The two appear to have known each other, but Sheriff Adkins says it took time to identify the shooter by his real name because the victim only knew him by his nickname. "His name is Alejandro Pineda Reynoso. He’s 29-years-old, has lived in the Madras area, he’s a Hispanic male, he has a large birthmark or mole on his left cheek; very recognizable." Adkins adds, "We have the Major Crime Team here and the Oregon State Police Crime Lab will be going through the residence and the surrounding area to identify evidence. We put out an Attempt to Locate nationwide, so every police department and Sheriff’s office in the nation will be notified." Dispatchers were heard on Broadcastify,
Monday, transmitting the information to other jurisdictions: "Short black hair, brown eyes, 170 (pounds), large mole on left cheek; driving a tan or silver 1996 Acura, plate 424GAU. Again, this is officer safety information, shooting that occurred in Madras."
Adkins says anyone who sees Reynoso or knows where he is should not contact the man, "He’s already shot one person multiple times. Obviously he’s armed, and I would consider him armed and dangerous. I don’t know what extent he’ll go to to escape." If you have information on the suspect's whereabouts, you're asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 541-475-2201 or 541-475-6520.
UPDATE: (08/29/18) The man accused in a Madras shooting turned himself in, Tuesday. Alejandro Pineda Reynoso walked into the Jefferson County Sheriff's office at about 7 p.m. and was arrested without incident for Attempted Murder, Assault and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.
Detectives had issued a nationwide alert for the 29-year-old who they believe shot a man early Monday morning, at Topps Trailer Court. The victim continues to recover at St. Charles Bend; his identity has not been released.
