RICHLAND, WA - Richland police are looking for a man involved in a shooting Wednesday night at a mobile home park in the Queensgate area.

At 9:20pm on the 100 block of Bitterroot Drive, police say 28-year-old James Leroy Davis III and 37-year-old Lowell L. Singleton were in a maroon Jeep Commander when they stopped by a Ford Explorer and started to argue with the three passengers.

Police say Davis got out of the car and started shooting at the Explorer with a rifle, firing off nearly 20 rounds. More than a dozen bullets hit the SUV.

One passenger was grazed by a bullet on his leg, but no one was seriously injured.

Police say the Jeep Commander drove away after the shooting.

A nearby apartment complex on the 2500 block of Duportail was also hit, but no injuries were reported in the complex.

The three men in the Explorer were identified as Dominic Bailer, 35, Edward Bolt, 32, and Ricci Vogel, 39, all of Kennewick.

"When you have those flying around a neighborhood, that's an extremely hazardous situation. We're very, very fortunate somebody didn't end up shot. With all the laws of probability, one of the three people in the SUV that was the target vehicle should've been hit," said Capt. Mike Cobb, Richland Police Department.

Police are working with other local agencies to track down Davis. They ask people to call with any tips they might have about the suspect.
