Sheriff's department seeks suspect in drive-by shooting

The Jackson County Sheriff's Department is looking for a man suspected of firing a small-caliber handgun at a home on Truax Road in Central Point Tuesday afternoon.

Deputies were called to a reported drive-by shooting at 3:40 p.m. in the 6000 block of Truax Road, the department said in a news release today.

A witness told investigators that a man riding in the passenger seat of a red, 1993 BMW 3 series car pulled out a small-caliber handgun and fired it at a residence. The car then raced away toward Central Point and was gone when deputies arrived.

Authorities have named Andrew Caucutt, 24, of Central Point as a possible suspect and are searching for him. They have searched several residences that he is associated with and are looking for the red BMW 3. It has Oregon license plate 385 BSD and chrome rims, police said.

Police asked anyone with any information about Caucutt or the car to call the Jackson County Sheriff's Department at 541-774-6800.
