Man suspected of 3 killings in OR town is still at large

A manhunt is underway along Highway 126 west of Eugene on Friday as law enforcement looks for a man suspected in three homicides and considered "armed and risky".

The Oregonian/OregonLive reported that the man is suspected of killing a person and stealing their truck before running over two people Friday near a casino in the coastal city of North Bend, leaving one of them dead.

Police have yet to identify the suspect, and the public are urged to not approach him. He's then accused of shooting and killing someone inside a cannabis shop in the city about 220 miles (354 kilometers) southwest of Portland.

Oen Evan Nicholson, 30, surrendered to police in Milwaukee early Sunday morning, without incident, Coos Bay District Attorney R. Paul Frasier said at a news conference.

Meanwhile, police had gone back to the RV park to search a trailer that was registered to the same person as the truck and found a body believed to belong to the owner of both, Frasier said.

By comparison, it took just over one month for the USA death toll to surge from 400 ,000 to 500,000 this past winter. The United States has racked up by far the largest death toll of the pandemic, ahead of Brazil and India.

Nicholson allegedly drove to the Herbal Choices Marijuana Dispensary and shot and killed resident Jennifer L. Davidson, 47, according to investigators.

Cops are looking for a white 2019 Dodge 3500 pickup with the license plate 243-LWL. The vehicle was found crashed on Highway 126 near Noti, and it had been set on fire.

It's not known if the suspect had a connection to the victims prior to the incidents.

Frasier said that the investigation is ongoing, but it appeared that Nicholson was able to drive to Wisconsin.
