One subject is in custody after an early morning shooting Sunday.
According to the Page Police, the shooting occurred at approximately 1:17 a.m. The Page Police Department responded to a report of multiple gun shots in the area of the Coconino County Probation Office located at 549 S. Navajo Dr. When officers arrived, witnesses described the incident in which the driver of a vehicle blocked the roadway and fired several shots from a gun at another vehicle that had stopped. Neither of the vehicles involved in the incident remained on scene.
Officers located multiple bullet casings in the roadway and also observed multiple bullet strikes to the probation office, one of which shattered the glass on the front door. Surveillance videos from multiple businesses in the area were obtained to get a better description of the vehicles involved in the incident.
Officers conducted a city-wide search for the involved vehicles and located one of the vehicles at approximately 11:30 a.m. The vehicle, which they found at an apartment complex on Elk Road, had four bullet strikes and was determined to belong to the victim in the incident. The victim reported that he had not been injured during the shooting.
At approximately 2:45 p.m. Sunday, a Jeep Grand Cherokee, matching the description of the vehicle belonging to the shooter, was located at a residence in the 800 Block of Grandview St.
Officers made contact with an individual inside of the residence, identified as Allen Alberto Medrano-Juarez, and took him into custody shortly thereafter.
Search warrants were executed on the vehicle and at a hotel room at Rodeway Inn where Medrano-Juarez had been staying. Numerous items of evidence, including a firearm, were seized during the execution of the warrants linking Medrano-Juarez to the shooting as well as a home invasion in Bigwater, UT that occurred on December 1. The Page Police Department is cooperating with the Big Water Marshall’s Office and the Kane County Sheriff’s Office on that investigation.
Medrano-Juarez was booked into the Coconino County Jail on charges of Attempted 2nd Degree Murder, Aggravated Assault, Disorderly Conduct with a Weapon, Prohibited Possessor in Possession of a Firearm, two counts of Endangerment, three counts of Criminal Damage, and Discharging a Firearm in City Limits.
