July 30, 2018

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — Police have identified two men found dead from gunshot wounds last week in southwestern Oregon.

Oregon State Police Sgt. Jeff Proulx said Monday that 28-year-old Matthew Cortez and 28-year-old Jesse Swift were both from Cave Junction.

Troopers from the Grants Pass office responded early Thursday to a report of two deceased men who were thought to have been killed in a traffic crash. The troopers determined the men had been shot.

Proulx says a suspect was detained shortly after the shooting, but no charges have been filed.

Detectives and the Josephine County District Attorney’s Office are continuing to investigate.
