Kennewick police officers are searching for a Pasco man who allegedly shot and injured at least three people in Kennewick this morning.
Victor A. Paniagua, 20, showed up at a party at 51 N. Edison St. in Kennewick about 1 a.m. Sunday.
Paniagua, who supposedly was not invited, was told to leave, and an altercation occurred. Witnesses report that Paniagua had a firearm and allegedly fired numerous shots before he fled on foot, officials said.
Two victims were transported to Kennewick General Hospital and were treated for gunshot wounds. Both are in stable condition, police said.
A third victim walked into Pasco's Lourdes Medical Center about 1 p.m. with a nonlife-threatening gunshot wound. That victim was treated for the injury and released.
The Kennewick Police Department is investigating the incident and report that Paniagua should be considered armed and dangerous.
