Crime, News

(Updated 5:46 p.m.) - A high school soccer game in Mattawa was interrupted by a drive-by shooting over the weekend. Now, sheriff's deputies need help finding the people responsible. According to witnesses that have come forward, the vehicle used in the shooting may be a gold-colored Oldsmobile Intrigue. 

Around 1:00 Saturday afternoon, someone fired shots at the athletic field next to Wahluke High School. Witnesses who were watching the soccer game say a car drove by, the people inside shouted profanities and threats toward a rival gang, then fired several shots from the car. Soccer players and spectators had to take cover; no one was hit by the bullets. The high school canceled the soccer game as a precaution.

Deputies were able to recover shell casings from the area and they're being sent to the state crime lab for analysis.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Grant County Sheriff's Office at 509-754-2011, ext. 468. You can also email information to crimetips@co.grant.wa.us - tipsters can remain anonymous.
