A Talent man has been charged with murder after police say he shot and killed a Black teenager in the parking lot of an Ashland hotel on Monday--reportedly, over loud music.

The shooting has drawn condemnation from Southern Oregon’s Black community, which raised concerns about the area’s culture and history of white supremacy.

The teen, whose name has not been publicly confirmed by police, has been widely identified on social media and in news reports as Aiden Ellison, 19.

Another Ashland resident Robert Keegan, 47, has been charged with his murder.

Keegan is facing four criminal counts, including second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter, reckless endangering and unlawful possession of a weapon.
