NW Redmond Guy Shot in Driveway by Redmond Father and 18-year-old Son

Police have arrested a man and his 18-year-old son for attempted murder and other offenses in connection with the drive-by shooting of a 42-year-old man in his driveway. They noted that a Deschutes County K-9 bite was necessary to apprehend the father.

Lieutenant Jesse Petersen stated that officers responded to the reported gunshot in the 1900 block of Northwest Cedar Avenue at approximately 7:30 a.m. Witnesses told police that a black passenger car drove by a residence, halted, and a person inside fired multiple gunshots at a man in the driveway before fleeing the scene.

Lieutenant stated that Redmond Police and Fire and Rescue personnel administered emergency first aid to the individual, who was transported to St. Charles Bend with life-threatening injuries.

Petersen stated that Bend police located the suspected vehicle involved in the shooting, a 2013 black Honda Civic, in the vicinity of NE First Street and Greenwood Avenue. Mark Johnson, 45, and Iceton Johnson, 18, both of Redmond, were identified as the suspects by the Tri-County Major Incident Team.

As the Fourth of July holiday approaches, do you realize that petroleum prices in Oregon are rising? According to AAA, the price of petroleum in Oregon increased by 8 cents, making it the fourth-highest increase in the nation:

The lieutenant stated that the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team (CERT) executed a search warrant at the Johnsons’ residence in Redmond at approximately 7:30 p.m. and discovered that no one was present. A Deschutes County sheriff’s deputy observed Mark Johnson’s Ford F-150 pickup truck in Sisters around 10 p.m. Petersen said.

The lieutenant reported that a Black Butte officer effectively deployed spike strips, deflating the tires of the pickup as the father, who was driving and was accompanied by his son, traveled west on Highway 20 near Black Butte Ranch. Petersen stated that DCSO deputies conducted a high-risk (guns drawn) halt of the pickup, and Iceton Johnson was cooperative as he was taken into custody.

However, his father refused to comply with deputies’ orders, Petersen said, so DCSO K-9 Ronin “was deployed and assisted in taking Mark Johnson into custody.”

Various other media have reported on the story, and people have been discussing it online –

Mark Johnson was taken to St. Charles Redmond by Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire personnel for treatment prior to joining his son at the county jail in Bend. Both males were charged with attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon, and reckless endangerment.

Iceton Johnson appeared in court for the first time on three formal complaints, which did not include the recklessly endangering charge. No information has been disclosed regarding the shooting’s motive or the suspects’ relationship to the victim.

Petersen stated in an update –

“RPD would like to thank the community members who have provided witness statements and video surveillance of the suspect vehicle.”

“Information provided by community members helped police identify and ultimately locate the suspect vehicle and suspects.”

“RPD would also like to thank members of MIT, CERT, and Sisters-Camp-Sherman Fire District for their assistance with this case. MIT and CERT personnel were instrumental in the success of investigating this case.”

Neighbors reported that police were called to the residence for issues such as speeding cars, but police could not corroborate these details due to the ongoing investigation.

Petersen stated that Redmond Police would like to thank Redmond Fire and Rescue, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, the Bend Police Department, the Oregon State Police, and other MIT partners for assisting with the investigation. Two commentators on the police posting reported that their children’s preschool is currently on lockdown.
