UPDATE: Schools In Moses Lake Go Into Lock Down

Posted: Updated:

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE GRANT COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: Law enforcement officers from several agencies teamed up Wednesday morning to apprehend two men and a juvenile suspected of severely beating another man.

Early on Wednesday Jan. 9, 2013, Grant County deputies were called for an assault victim at a home in the Pelican Point neighborhood south of Moses Lake near the Moses Lake Sand Dunes. The victim, a 41-year-old Moses Lake man, had serious injuries which he said were caused during a beating at a location yet to be verified.

The victim told investigators the identities of three men – two adults and a juvenile – who allegedly caused his injuries, and that the three suspects assaulted him then loaded him into a car and drove him to the Moses Lake Sand Dunes. The victim was able to escape and seek help at a nearby home. The victim was taken by ambulance to Samaritan Hospital.

Throughout the course of the morning, investigators, Moses Lake Police, Grant County Sheriff's Deputies, Grant County's Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team (INET) and the Moses Lake Regional Tactical Response Team (TRT) searched for the three suspects.

Around 7 a.m., information was received that one of the suspects, a 23-year-old man, was at a home in the 800 block of Grand Drive in Moses Lake. As a precaution, sheriff and police incident command team members called the Moses Lake School District, Moses Lake Christian Academy, the nearby Moses Lake Clinic and close-by daycare centers and had them all lockdown.

Officers, deputies, INET and TRT surrounded the home and the suspect came out of the home and was arrested without incident around 8:15 a.m. Schools and businesses then lifted their lockdown orders.

Then, around 10 a.m., police learned where the other two suspects were. On the way to that home at 816 Evelyn Drive, police and deputies stopped a car which had one of the suspects inside.

That suspect, an 18-year-old Moses Lake man, was arrested without incident. Officers and deputies then continued to the Evelyn Drive home where they arrested the third suspect, a 16-year-old boy, in the driveway of the home.

The investigation continues, and the names of the suspects have not yet been released pending the filing of criminal charges. We would prefer at this time not to identify the victim until the investigation is complete.
