UPDATE: Three arrested in SE Keizer shooting

Facebook Twitter Email

Three men were arrested early Saturday morning on conspiracy and weapons charges after they apparently returned to the scene of a Friday night shooting.

A vehicle reportedly tied to the incident had returned to the Partridge Lane Apartments shortly after investigators had completed processing the crime scene there. Officers had been investigating what was called a “gang fight.” Witnesses reported a gunshot at about 8:52 p.m., and seeing at least 30 people fleeing the scene immediately afterwards. One person, a 20-year-old man who lives at the apartments, was treated for what KPD Capt. Jeff Kuhns called a non-life threatening gunfire-related injury.

At about 2:13 a.m. Saturday morning Sgt. Andrew Copeland located the vehicle, a green 1996 Plymouth Voyager mini-van, and stopped it near the intersection of Hyacinth Street NE and 25th Street NE in Salem.

Arrested were:

– Hector Flores, 18, Gervais, conspiracy to commit assault and parole violation.

– Jose Emanuel Patrico, 20, Keizer, conspiracy to commit assault, unlawful possession of a short-barrel firearm, reckless endangering and unlawful use of a weapon.

– Fermin Flores-Bautista, 21, Gervais, conspiracy to commit assault, unlawful possession of a firearm and second-degree assault.

    See we don’t need to vote yes on the safety fee. Keizer is safe enough. Oh, wait, what? 30 people involved and shots fired? Oh I’m sure a police dept that has had it’s budget reduced and leaves four officer positions unfilled can handle that. Right?

    Let me get this straight. In the middle of a dark and rainy night, Keizer police officer Copeland stops vehicle loaded with suspects who were involved with a gang shooting hours earlier – officer Copeland (and other officers?) approach this vehicle not knowing what danger awaits them and apprehends suspects – finding a shotgun reportedly used in the earlier shooting. How incredibly courageous is this? – all in the line of duty. Thank you Officer Copeland and the rest of the members of or police department(s) for performing this brave act and taking these creeps off the streets, these creeps who put my fellow Keizer citizens in jeopardy with their senseless act. Thank you for putting your life on the line for us – it cannot go unappreciated!

    Keizer Police did their job and did it well without the increased tax. So why do we need more taxes?
