Detectives seeking information after man shot near Moses Lake

MOSES LAKE, Wash. (11SEPT2018) – Grant County detectives are asking the public for help with any information about the shooting of a man near Moses Lake early Tuesday morning.

Investigators were called around 2:15 a.m. when a 34-year-old Moses Lake man came to the Samaritan Healthcare emergency room suffering from several gunshot wounds and burns to his face suspected to be from pepper spray. The man underwent surgery and is in stable condition.

The man told detectives he was fixing his broken down vehicle somewhere near Road 4-Northeast and Road L-Northeast when he was confronted by a man armed with a handgun who tried to rob him. The victim said a fight ensued during which time he was shot several times and also pepper sprayed. The victim says he then drove himself to the emergency room. Further details about the incident are unclear.

Detectives impounded the victim’s vehicle as evidence. They also searched a several-mile area around Roads 4 and L-Northeast but have not been able to find the shooting scene.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Grant County Sheriff’s Office at 509-762-1160 or email crimetips@grantcountywa.gov. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
