Medford man jailed, second man injured in west Medford shooting

A Medford man is in jail on assault and attempted murder charges after allegedly shooting another man in the hip and putting him in the hospital Sunday night, Medford police reported.

Curtis Lee Wiles, 32, was in the Jackson County Jail on charges of attempted murder, first-degree assault, three counts of reckless endangerment and possession of methamphetamine. His bail is set at $2.02 million.

Police declined to release the victim's name, the relationship between the two men or a motive.

"More information will come out soon," Medford police Sgt. Derek Parks said.

Police were called to Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center at 8:22 p.m. Sunday after doctors reported treating a man for a gunshot wound to the hip. The shooting allegedly took place at the corner of Plum Street and Winchester Avenue.

Police tracked Wiles to the Minute Market on Highland Drive at 11:17 p.m., where they arrested him. Authorities say there is no indication the shooting was gang-related. The man who was shot remains hospitalized, but no update on his condition was available.

Police ask anyone with additional information about the shooting to call 541-774-2250.

Court records show Wiles has been convicted of second-degree theft and fourth-degree assault in Jackson County.
