Police: Dozens of rounds fired in Pasco gang shooting

Tri-City HeraldMarch 24, 2014 

— Police say another shooting Sunday night in Pasco that left a man wounded is believed to be gang-related. A similar shooting March 15 wounded two young men.

On Sunday, police were called to the 1800 block of East Broadway Street at 8:30 p.m. after dozens of gunshots were heard in the area.

When officers arrived, they saw two houses had been hit with bullets, police said. People were inside but no one was hurt.

Officers found several shell casings in the street from a rifle and a handgun, police said. No suspects were in the area.

A short while later, a 23-year-old Pasco man came into a local hospital with minor gunshot wounds, Pasco police said.

The man was uncooperative with police and was treated and released from the hospital.

Investigators said they since have found several vehicles involved in the shooting and have identified two people of interest. Their names were not released Monday.

Two young men with gunshot wounds were treated March 15 at Lourdes Medical Center in connection with another gang-related incident. The men also were uncooperative with investigating officers, police said.

Police said people in two vehicles shot at each other in the area of North Oregon Street and East Lewis Street about 7 p.m.

Police are investigating if that shooting is connected to a report hours later in Kennewick when about four gunshots were fired in the area of Seventh Place, between Kent and Olympia Streets, shortly after midnight.

Officers found shell casings in the area but did not find any suspects.
