▶️ Redmond PD searches for suspect in Monday morning drive-by; one hospitalized


A drive-by shooting Monday morning in Redmond has left one man hospitalized. Authorities say they’re still searching for the suspect and vehicle used in the shooting.

“It’s a little- literally too close to home. Here, I never would have expected it. I was like ‘oh, it’s Redmond. It seems quiet. Everyone seems like really good neighbors,” neighbor Elisa Kanoff said.

Officers responded to the shooting at around 7:30 a.m. Monday, near the intersection of Cedar Avenue and 19th Street. Redmond Police are asking those in the area to review any surveillance footage showing a black passenger car and to contact RPD with any information through the non-emergency dispatch, 541-693-6911.

Police say the car drove by a residence, stopped, and fired multiple rounds at the resident in the driveway. The alleged shooter then left the location.

One witness who wished to remain anonymous said she heard around 10 to 15 gunshots.

“I had just woken up. I wasn’t even sure if it was real because I was still just getting out of bed. I wasn’t sure if I should call anyone.”

The witness says she personally knows the victim.

“He was the first person we met when we moved into the neighborhood,” the witness said. “He’s super cool every time we’re walking our dogs and everything he stops and says ‘hi,’ makes small talk.”

Redmond PD shut down the surrounding area.

Lieutenant Jesse Petersen with Redmond Police says he believes this was an isolated incident and there is no current risk to the community.

He encourages people to say something if they hear something.

“If you hear something like gunshots, or what sounds like gunshots, call us through non-emergency and let us know. We’ll come out and check it out. Even if it’s fireworks, we’ll still come check it out,” Petersen said.

Redmond Police encourage anyone with any information regarding this case to contact their non-emergency dispatch at 541-504-3400.
