McMinnville shooting victim identified

The Dayton resident who died of a gunshot wound last Saturday night at a McMinnville residence has been identified as 35-year-old Brigido Noe Sauceda, according to Capt. Tim Symons of the McMinnville police.

He said investigators have eliminated “homicidal violence” as a cause of death. That leaves self-inflicted or accidental as probable causes, according to Symons.

He said investigators continue to follow up with interviews. There were seven individuals in the residence at the time, a mix of family members and friends, Symons said. Everyone who was present at the time has been accounted for. There was never any danger to the public. Symons said he doesn’t know when the investigation will conclude.

Officers responded shortly before 11 p.m. to a reported shooting in the 1200 block of Northeast 10th Street, just east of Lafayette Avenue. Sauceda was pronounced dead at the scene from a single gunshot wound.

A portion of 10th Street was closed as the investigation continued well into Sunday.

The Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Office, Oregon State Police and Newberg-Dundee police assisted McMinnville police at the scene.

Anyone with information about the incident is still asked to call the McMinnville police tip line at 503-434-2337.

A GoFundMe account has been established for Sauceda’s family. It can be accessed through and searching for “Brigido Sauceda.”
