13-Year-Old Juvenile Armed With .22 Caliber Rifle Shoots At Grant County Deputies
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: Grant County Sheriff's Office deputies were called to a residence located in the 20000 block of North Frontage Road NE, 10-miles east of Moses Lake, to investigate a possible domestic violence assault. The caller advised that her 13-year old boy was throwing rocks at her vehicle and needed assistance from law enforcement. (Reported at 1 pm. on the 25th of August)
As deputies arrived on scene the 13-year old juvenile, apparently armed with a .22 caliber rifle began firing on them. Deputies were able to avoid being stuck as several rounds were fired in their direction; the vehicles the deputies were driving however, were hit.
Shots were exchanged between deputies and the 13-year old juvenile. The juvenile did eventually comply with commands from the deputies and ceased firing where he was taken into custody at gun point without further incident.
No one was injured during the event and only the sheriff's vehicles were struck by fired rounds during the incident. The Columbia Basin Investigative Team (CBIT) led by Captain David Sands of the Moses Lake Police Department are charged with the investigation of the officer involved shooting. CBIT is made up of detectives from the Washington State Patrol, Adams County Sheriff's Office, Othello Police Department, the Quincy Police Department, and the Grant County Sheriff's Office. (Since the shooting involved deputies from Grant County those detectives will not assist in the investigation.)
The names of the deputies involved are being withheld until the investigative team has completed its officer involved shooting investigation. Both deputies are on administrative leave with pay during the investigation.
