The Jackson County Sheriff's Office responded to the 6600 block of Coleman Creek Road yesterday morning after receiving reports that a man was shooting at neighbors. Officers evacuated some of the neighbors in the area to a hospitality center set up at Talent City Hall. Once the neighbors were removed, SWAT team members were able to approach the man's house and make contact with him. They arrested 41-year-old Jon Ware, who has a history with law enforcement. Ware told police that he wasn't trying to hurt his neighbors, but just scare them off of his property. Talent Police and Oregon State Police also responded to the incident.
