An Othello man was shot Friday night while he stopped at the intersection of East Pine Street and North First Avenue in Othello.
Martel Saucedo-Barajas, 20, told Othello police someone he didn't know got out of a black Dodge Durango pickup and fired a shotgun at him.
Though Saucedo-Barajas was hit in the hand and forehead, he followed the pickup while calling 911.
The suspects in the truck fired at him again when the vehicles reached Highway 17. Saucedo-Barajas' car developed mechanical problems, forcing him to stop.
Never miss a local story.
Police could not find the Durango. Saucedo-Barajas was treated at Othello Community Hospital and released.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Othello Police Department at 509-488-3314.
