Location change for Moses Lake meeting on recent violence | Crime
The location for the Moses Lake town hall meeting to discuss recent gang violence has been changed to accommodate more people. The meeting, called by Sheriff Tom Jones, will be held at North Elementary on Wednesday, February 26th, rather than at the Grant County Sheriff’s substation.
The meeting was called on Friday, following a drive-by shooting on Thursday. The incident is the fourth shooting in the Larsen Housing area in the last month. Two of those shootings targeted 16-year-old Brandon Mende, who was injured in one shooting and killed in the second.
“We are done, we are going to work with the communities and we are going to make sure we take back our communities from this criminal element,” Sheriff Jones said in a press conference on Friday.
The Sheriff’s Office says the purpose of the meeting is to discuss “a sustainable plan for the future of a safe and secure community.” Community members are encouraged to prepare questions for the meeting.
