EUGENE, Ore. -- A Eugene Police Special Investigations Unit detective has linked a suspect to another, unrelated crime, police say.

Geoffrey Thomas Lindsley, who was already in custody for allegedly pulling a gun on a man next to Cal Young Middle School on Feb. 21, is now being charged with unlawful use of a weapon and carrying a concealed firearm.

On Feb. 16, Lindsley was reportedly caught on camera firing a gun in broad daylight in an alley near the power substation on West 15th Avenue and Jefferson Street. The shot had residents of a Eugene neighborhood feeling scared to leave their own homes.

The officer arresting him on Feb. 21 noted Lindsley looked like a man in surveillance photos from the Feb. 16 shot-fired incident.

The detective is following up on other cases of Lindsley firing the gun in other areas of the city between Feb. 16 and his arrest on Feb. 21. Additional charges are pending.
