On October 15th shortly before 6:00 pm, Springfield Police Detectives with assistance from Eugene Police Street Crimes Unit located Kyle David Debarros near the 3000 block or River Road.  Debarros had been identified as the suspect in a series of shootings that occurred in the Springfield area on Monday, October 11th.

The initial shooting occurred just outside the City of Springfield in Lane County Sherriff’s Office Jurisdiction on Monday morning.  Given the close proximity to Springfield, Springfield Patrol Units responded to assist LCSO.  The second incident occurred in the area of 46th and Main Street in Springfield Monday evening.  Springfield Patrol units responded to the initial call on Main Street and started the investigation.  Due to the seriousness of the case Springfield Detectives were called in to assist.

The investigation continued through the week.  As information was obtained that the both shootings involved the same suspect and victim, Springfield PD adopted both cases.

Friday afternoon Detectives developed information that Debarros was in the River Road area.  As additional leads were followed in attempts to locate Debarros, a Springfield Detective spotted a suspicious subject on a bicycle.  The male briefly disappeared but was located a second time and contacted by Springfield Detectives and Officers from EPD Street Crimes.  At this time the male was positively identified as Debarros.

Debarros was lodged at the Lane County Jail on 4 counts of Attempted Murder.

Additional charges are expect in this case.

“The rapid apprehension of the person suspected in these shootings is a testament to the resolute commitment of The Springfield Police Department to hold accountable those who believe they can victimize our community. This collaborative effort was possible thanks to strong partnerships with the Eugene Police Department, the FBI, and the Lane County Sheriff’s Office.”    Springfield Chief of Police, Andrew Shearer
