Oregon men convicted in Nevada homicide, attempted robbery


RENO, Nev. (AP) — Nevada prosecutors say two Oregon men face possible life sentences without parole after being convicted of murder and attempted robbery in a 2019 fatal shooting during a robbery attempt in Reno.

The Washoe County District Attorney’s Office said 24-year-old Daniel Shadow Bear Hutchinson and 55-year-old Justin Tyron Jackson, both from Chiloquin, Oregon, are scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 17 in the shooting death of 37-year-old Christopher Dressler of Sparks.

According to the office, Dressler met Hutchinson and Jackson at a club and walked with the two men before they tried to rob Dressler, who was shot in the chest by Hutchinson.
