UPDATE:

MOSES LAKE, Wash. - Grant County Detectives have made an arrest in the case of a Moses Lake man found shot on December 11th near Hiawatha Rd and Road 5 NE and are seeking two others who are possibly connected with this case.

Jordan S. Wiester, 21, of Moses Lake, was arrested on December 18th and is now in the Grant County Jail on felony charges of suspicion of attempted first-degree murder with premeditation and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Dale Olmos, was found in a field near the 2800 block of Road 5 NE with a gunshot wound to the head. Detectives believe Olmos was shot because others thought he had stolen a cell phone from another person.

Detectives are still seeking two other individuals:

1.) Jose Rivera, 16 (Suspect) - Sought for attempted first-degree murder. Street name is "Kriminal." He is a Hispanic male with light comlplexion, 5'8," and about 200 pounds. He has black hair and blue eyes. 

Although it is not routine for GCSO to release names and photos of juvenile suspects, GCSO will release the identity of juvenile suspects if they feel they pose a threat to the community. In this case, they feel Rivera does pose a threat.

2.) Gilbert Williamson, 46 (Person of Interest) - White male, 6'0" and about 220 pounds. He has hazel eyes and short brown hair. 

Anyone with information on Rivera or Williamson should not attempt to detain them. Rather, people should call the Grant County Sheriff's Office, 509-762-1160, or send information to crimetips@co.grant.wa.us. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
