JACKSON COUNTY, OR (KPTV) - A woman was shot while driving on Interstate 5 in southern Oregon.

Oregon State Police troopers responded to a shooting at 9:45 p.m. Wednesday near Milepost 37 in Jackson County.

Troopers said a woman was driving north when she was struck by a bullet. The woman was taken to the hospital, where she was treated and released.

Oregon State Police stated the shooting is believed to be linked to previous shootings reported along Interstate 5 in southern Oregon beginning in late May.

Anyone who believes their vehicle was struck by gunfire is urged to call 911, and note the time and location before leaving the area.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Oregon State Police Southern Command Center at 1-800-442-2068 or *OSP and refer to case #SP20-235168.

You are late Fox, the OSP caught him.


I have a feeling these are practice maneuvers. Something bigger is coming.

Oh lovely..we got our own little John Lee Malvo runnin' around in southern Oregon, set up above the freeway in the trees with a sniper rifle. Well that thought is obviously a comfort to those traveling I-5 in that area. This started in May, and we're just hearing about this now?


What kind of bullet?

Mr Q

a lead one?
