Wounded Man Wanted for Oregon Home Invasion Believed Headed Through California
A BOLO has been issued over the local scanner for a 2016 white Chrysler minivan with the Oregon license plate #647GJG and one of its occupants, Linzin Rooni Eshalom who has several gunshot wounds. Eshalom, a suspect in a home invasion, is believed to be headed to Arizona.
Our local law enforcement have been asked to keep a lookout for Eshalom and the vehicle. Since it is possible the vehicle and its occupants may be headed into our area, we did a little research. Here’s the Oregon State Police press release:
On April 19th, 2016, at approximately 10:30PM, OSP Troopers were dispatched to the report of a home invasion robbery at 8051 Holland Loop Road in Cave Junction. The report indicated one occupant of the residence was pistol whipped and shot by the suspect(s). The initial report indicated that there were four suspects who were dressed in black with masks covering their faces.
While OSP Troopers were on scene of the home invasion, Asante Three Rivers Hospital in Grants Pass reported a unidentified male had been transported and left at Three Rivers Hospital. The report indicated the unidentified male had been shot several times.
Detectives from the Oregon State Police Criminal Division responded to assist. The subsequent investigation has revealed the following information:
The unidentified male who was dropped off at Three Rivers Hospital has been identified as 32 year old, Linzin Rooni ESHALOM. ESHALOM self-discharged himself from the Asante Three Rivers Hospital with the assistance of his mother and sister on April 25th, 2016. They are currently believed to be enroute to Glendale, Arizona in a 2016 white, Chrysler, Town and Country mini-van, bearing Oregon Plate, 647GJG.
The Oregon State Police has probable cause to arrest Linzin Rooni ESHALOM, who resides in Peoria, Arizona, on the following charges:
Unlawful Use of a Weapon
Additional investigation is being conducted in order to identify the three additional suspects.
More information will be released when it is available as this is ongoing investigation.
