In the early morning hours of Monday September 2, residents of West Medford, Oregon were alarmed by a shooting that took place, Jennevieve Fong of CBS News 10 reports. A 17-year-old shot two individuals who were attempting to break into his home that morning. In a later article, Fong reports that the Medford Police Department (MPD) are continuing their investigation into the shooting and looking into potential digital evidence.
The MPD are searching to obtain any prior threats made between the parties involved. MPD Lt. Budreau said that they are looking at not only threats that could have been made in person, but also looking at threats that came from electronic communications, such as text messages, social media, and instant messaging applications.
Electronic evidence gathered from cellphones, computers and social media has become a new norm for many investigations as it provides investigators with additional information. The MPD has enlisted the help of the Southern Oregon High-Tech Crimes Task Force to assist in collecting electronic evidence, and it said that the digital evidence obtained will be included in their investigation.
