Jones Makes Court Appearance

The mayor of Rufus was in court in Hood River on Thursday to be arraigned on charges related to an alleged road rage shooting on Halloween night near Parkdale.  Dowen Jones pleaded not guilty to first-degree attempted murder and four counts of first-degree attempted assault.  Jones is accused of shooting at a family while they were in their vehicle on Highway 281 on Halloween night.  The Hood River County Sheriff’s Office says the family was traveling south when an SUV that was driving erratically in front of them abruptly pulled over to the side of the highway.  The family slowed to get a description of the driver and then a man stepped out of the passenger side and fired multiple rounds at the family.  No one was injured.  Jones’ next court appearance was scheduled for December 7.
