Posted: Tuesday, Feb 19th, 2013

Saginaw park called a 'troubled area'

A dispute at the Saginaw Trailer Park north of Cottage Grove on Wednesday, Feb. 13 ended in arrest and multiple charges including attempted murder for two local men.

According to Oregon State Police Sergeant Andy Kenyon, at approximately 6 p.m. Wednesday, the occupants of two pickups were traveling northbound on Highway 99 near Milepost 9 following an alleged dispute at the Saginaw Trailer Court - Mobile Home Park.

While chasing after the victim, a gray 1989 Dodge Dakota pickup with two men intentionally struck the victimís red 1988 Ford F150 pickup.

As the Dodge pickup then passed the Ford pickup, a passenger fired a shotgun at the Ford pickup, hitting it near the driverís side rear wheel.

After the shooting, the victim, Harold Lloyd Wilson, age 49, contacted an OSP trooper at a local store to report the incident. Wilson was not injured. The trooper and Lane County deputies located the two suspects at the trailer park and detained them for detectives.

The suspects were later identified as: pickup driver Joshua Miller, 27, of Springfield and passenger Daniel Clinton Moore, 34, of Cottage Grove. As a result of the incident, Miller and Moore each face charges of attempted murder, menacing and recklessly endangering another person.

Miller faces an additional charge of reckless driving, while Moore was cited as a felon in possession of a firearm.
