2020 shootingEdit

On June 4, 2020, police received 9-1-1 calls about shots being fired at Talucah Road. Upon responding, they found a house on fire. When the flames were extinguished, the bodies of three females, four males, and a dog were discovered; all of them had suffered gunshot wounds. Police announced the incident was a targeted attack, and by the next day, all seven victims were identified.[4][5] On June 22, two suspects, John Michael Legg, 19, and Frederic Allen Rogers, 22, were arrested in a silver Dodge Charger in Stayton, Oregon, 15 miles (24 km) southeast of Salem, during a traffic stop, and both face capital murder charges. Legg and Rogers were allegedly motivated by an internal dispute in a club in which they and three of the victims were members.[6][7]
