On 6-5-21 at about 1330 hours EWPD Officers were dispatched to a reported Weapons Violation/Shooting near the intersection of 9th ST NE and N Baker Ave. One group of individuals had arrived at a residence near this location to confront another group. During the confrontation firearms were displayed and then several shots were fired. One victim was shot in the leg and was transported to CWH via private vehicle immediately after being shot.
The individual who was shot (24-year-old man from East Wenatchee) was discharged from CWH about three hours later. This incident appears to be related to an unreported incident from several days prior. It also appears to be gang related.
Numerous search warrants have already been served as the investigation is active and ongoing.
