Detectives seek ‘person of interest’ in transient camp assault
by Cheryl McDermott
Three men were injured in an assault at a transient camp south of Bend Saturday night, and detectives are seeking a fourth individual they have named a “person of interest”.
According to a news release prepared by Deschutes County Sheriff’s Lt. Kevin Dizney, Bend Police officers were called to St. Charles Medical Center (SCMC) about 8:40 p.m., January 12, when two men identified as Jesse David Lopez, 43, and 64-year old Earl Wayne Blackshear were admitted with “varying levels” of injury. Lopez was later released, Dizney said.

After determining the assault involving at least three men occurred at a transient camp located off China Hat Road and near Highway 97 just outside the city limit boundary, officers called in Deschutes County Sheriff’s deputies and detectives.
Sheriff’s detectives said that the assault involved Lopez, Blackshear, and Kevin Daniel Dill, 40 - a man who was also admitted to SCMC about midnight with non-life threatening injuries - and possibly a fourth man.
Detectives are asking the public’s help in locating this fourth man, a “person of interest” they said was present at the time of the assault, but whose involvement is unknown. Jacob Louis Calhoun is 23-years old, Dizney said. He is described as 6-foot 3-inches tall with an approximate weight of 175 pounds, and has blue eyes and blond hair.
“No clothing description is available,” Dizney said, adding that Calhoun is not associated with any vehicles or specific locations in the area. Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Calhoun or has information about the incident is asked to contact detectives at (541) 693-6911.
The investigation is continuing to determine the men’s role in the assaults, and no arrests have been made.
