Pasco police were searching an Astor Way home Saturday after a shooting left a person in critical condition.

Detectives were in and out of a home all morning after blocking off Astor Way between 12th and 13th avenues.

Police found the 27-year-old man near the intersection of 13th Avenue and Astor Way around 5:30 a.m., just minutes after an officer patrolling Court Street heard several gunshots.

The man was in critical condition when taken to the hospital, Pasco police said. They haven’t released an update on his condition or if they are searching for any suspects.
