Victim hospitalized with multiple gunshot wounds; suspect turns himself in.

JOHN STEVENS FOR THE MADRAS PIONEER - Members of the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team were called to the scene.A 29-year-old man who was wanted in connection with a shooting early Monday morning, Aug. 27, turned himself in at the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office around 7 p.m. the next day.

Alejandro Pineda-Reynoso, of Madras, who is a suspect in a 2:30 a.m. shooting at space 40, of Tops Trailer Park, at 23 NW Depot Road, on Aug. 27, walked into the lobby of the Sheriff's Office and turned himself in to deputies without incident, according to JCSO Undersheriff Marc Heckathorn.

Law enforcement officials had been searching for Pineda-Reynoso since responding to the shooting, and had issued a request for the community to be on the lookout for the suspect, who was "considered armed and dangerous."

In the original report, Heckathorn noted the both the Sheriff's Office and Madras Police Department had responded and found a male, who had been shot multiple times, outside the trailer near its entrance. The trailer belonged to Pineda-Reynoso.

"Deputies used two tourniquets to control the injured person's bleeding until medics from Jefferson County EMS arrived and transported him to St. Charles Madras," said Heckathorn. "The injured male was later airlifted to St. Charles Bend for further treatment. His current condition is unknown at this time."

Heckathorn, who has not released the victim's name, said that the suspect and victim knew each other.

The Sheriff's Office was assisted by Oregon State Police and the Warm Springs Police Department, which helped secure the perimeter of the location until members of the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team arrived. Detectives from the Tri-County Major Incident Team also assisted with the investigation, along with the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office, Heckathorn said.

After obtaining and executing a search warrant at the trailer, police were unable to locate the supect, who was identified only by a nickname. However, through investigation, they identified Pineda-Reynoso as the suspect.

Pineda-Reynoso's most recent arrest in Jefferson County occurred on July 31, when he was arrested for first-degree forgery, second-degree criminal trespass, third-degree theft, and possession of methamphetamine.
