Oregon State Police (OSP) is asking for the public's assistance for any information to help identify the person(s) who shot at another motorist's vehicle Sunday night along the northbound lanes of Interstate 5 south of Wilsonville. After three bullets struck the vehicle containing a Cornelius-area family, the vehicle containing two suspects was last seen northbound passing the Interstate 5 Baldock Rest Area.
On June 9, 2013 at approximately 10:24 p.m., OSP received a report that a vehicle was shot at while traveling northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 281. Preliminary investigation indicates the victims' red 1990 Honda Civic driven by JOSE GOMEZ MUNOZ, age 43, from Cornelius, and occupied by his wife and two children, ages not provided, was northbound when an unknown vehicle containing two young adult Hispanic males pulled alongside the Honda. Two "loud bangs" were heard and then the suspect vehicle, described as an unknown make or model dark four-door, sped away northbound.
Three bullet holes were found in the left side of the car; two in the driver's door and one in the left rear passenger door. None of the bullets penetrated into the car's interior.
OSP is continuiing the investigation. Senior Trooper Dave Kammerman is the lead investigator. Anyone with information related to this investigation is asked to contact OSP Northern Command Center dispatch at 800-452-7888.
