The Grant County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help to identify the people responsible for the murder last week of Arturo Sosa, 28, of Othello.
He died from multiple gunshot wounds, according to Grant County Coroner Craig Morrison.
Sosa and an unidentified passenger were in a green mid-90’s Ford Explorer with Herbalife independent distributor decals printed in Spanish across the rear window,”said sheriff’s office spokesman Kyle Foreman.
The SUV was found partially blocking Highway 262 near Royal City after a second vehicle pulled up and fired on Sosa and his passenger. They were traveling west on Highway 26 before the shooting.
