Drive-By Shooter’s Vehicle Seized by Medford Police
Medford police have seized a maroon Jeep Cherokee they believe was used in a west Medford drive-by shooting last week, but have made no arrests at this time.
Witnesses reported that on February 20th at about 11:00 a.m. two men inside a Jeep Cherokee were talking to a man walking on West Main Street and after a short conversation the men in the Jeep opened fire and sped away while the man being shot at fled on foot. One bullet shattered the window of a nearby home. Police recovered the bullet and no one in the home was hurt.
Acting on an anonymous tip police went to the 100 block of Elm Street where Martin Derbigny, 22, was living temporarily. Officers already had warrants for Derbigny stemming from past drug and weapons charges and arrested him on those charges while seizing two rifles and three handguns and the Jeep.
Derbigny has since posted bail. The case remains under investigation and authorities are seeking the man who was shot at. Police suspect the incident was not random and could involve illegal activities on both sides.
