Gunfire erupts in Grandview last Saturday night

GRANDVIEW- Gunfire erupted on Saturday night in Grandview in the 100 block of Cedar Street. Police say officers responded to a report of shots fired at 9:55 p.m. and when arriving on the scene, discovered a large amount of glass from a vehicle in the roadway.

Witnesses told police between four and five shots were fired at a vehicle and at least one house was hit. Officers found a bullet inside of the home.

While investigating the shooting, Grandview police learned that two juvenile males, one from Grandview and the other from Prosser, were shot at while in their vehicle and while attempting to leave a store parking lot in the Cedar Street area. One of the bullets shattered the rear window of the vehicle while two other bullets also struck the vehicle. The occupants were not hit.

Police say the two juveniles that were shot at are not known to be gang members and as of now the motive for the shooting is unclear. Police also do not believe the house was a target and think it was hit by a stray bullet that was intended to hit the vehicle.

Grandview police are encouraging anyone with information on Saturday's shooting to call them at 882-2000.
