MEDFORD, Ore. — According to the police report, the state troopers arrested 49-year-old Kenneth Ayers in August following a string of shootings between Douglas, Josephine, and Jackson counties — one of which injured a woman near Central Point.
And, this former UPS driver accused of shooting at drivers, has been indicted on 34 counts in Jackson County Circuit Court, the county District Attorney’s Office announced on Thursday.
Prosecutors from the three counties agreed to try the case in Jackson County for charges stemming from eight different shootings between the months of May and August.
“Mr. Ayers has stipulated to the venue being in Jackson County for all charges,” the district attorney’s office said.
