An attempted murder suspect was arrested after firing shots into a car in McMinnville, according to police.

Officers responded to reports of a gang-related shooting at 6:45 p.m. Aug. 6 near Northeast 27th Street and Baker Street.

Witnesses said a man got out of a vehicle, approached another vehicle that was stopped behind him and fired several rounds into the car.

The driver of the second vehicle accelerated forward and struck the shooter, knocking him to the ground and causing significant leg injuries, according to police.

There were no reports of any other injuries in connection with the shooting.

Police said the shooter was helped by his friends in leaving the area.

The subsequent investigation led to the service of several search warrants in McMinnville. A warrant was served Friday in northwest McMinnville that resulted in multiple arrests, including the arrest of the primary suspect.

Gustavo Andalon, 19, of McMinnville was arrested on charges of attempted murder, unlawful use of a weapon, pointing a firearm at another and reckless endangering.

Also arrested were Jose Alejandro Andalon, 21, and Jorge Luis Jacobo, 18, both of McMinnville, on charges of hindering prosecution. Jacobo is facing an additional charge of first-degree theft of a firearm.

Also arrested during the service of a search warrant in this case was Jose Eric Marquez-Gonzalez, 20, of McMinnville, on the charge of possession of cocaine.

Police said more arrests are expected in this case.

Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to contact Detective Sam Elliott via the McMinnville Police Department tip line at 503-434-2337.
