On August 6th, 2016 at about 6:45 pm, McMinnville Police received reports of a possible gang related shooting on 27th near Baker Street in McMinnville. Based on witness reports, a male got out of a vehicle and approached another vehicle stopped behind that vehicle. He then fired several rounds from a handgun at the second vehicle. Reportedly, the driver of the second vehicle accelerated forward and struck the shooter, knocking him to the ground and causing significant leg injuries. Based on witness reports, no one was injured other than the attempted shooter. With the assistance of friends from the vehicle, the injured shooter fled in the vehicle that he had originally gotten out of.
