Pullman suspect arrested after shooting someone with shotgun

PULLMAN, Wash. - One person is in police custody after a shooting in Pullman near the Washington State University campus.

Police say they got a call at 12:28 Tuesday morning from someone reporting shots fired at Providence Court Apartments. When they arrived on scene, they did find someone had been shot at that location.

The victim was transported to a hospital a head injury after police say he was shot, by a shotgun, in the head at close range. He is expected to survive the injury.

The suspect, Lewis Lawrence, was found a short time later in Moscow, Idaho, that's just across the Washington-Idaho border. Police tell KHQ he will have to be extradited to face charges in Pullman, Washington.
