A Prosser-area resident was taken to Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center Thursday after being shot in the arm in an apparent drive-by shooting.
The Benton County Sheriff’s Office said Olivie Cruz Hernandez was wounded when unknown assailants fired what appeared to be high-caliber rifle shots at a home in the 42000 block of West Evans Road, near Prosser, shortly before 7 p.m. Officers found Hernandez, 43, and his son, 12, when they arrived.
Hernandez had been shot once in his right forearm and the residence was struck multiple times, according to a news release.
Hernandez was initially taken by ambulance to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland, then transported to Harborview. His condition was not available Friday.
