The North Central Washington Special Investigation Unit was called upon to investigate the Officer involved shooting that occurred July 27, 2017 at Albertsons in Wenatchee. Over the next several weeks, the SIU conducted a complete and independent investigation of the incident including interviews of all identified witnesses, review of all known video, and collection of physical evidence. At the conclusion of the active investigation the case was turned over to the Chelan County Prosecutor’s Office.
