Weapon Violation

On November 17, 2015 at about 8:30 PM Richland Police received several calls of shots being fired near the 1500 block of George Washington Way (between Torbett St. and Van Giesen).

Responding officers searched the area and found approximately 15 shell casings from a 9mm semi-automatic pistol.  The shell casings were in the parking lot of the M Hotel, 1515 GWW.
Assistance was requested from a Kennewick PD K-9 unit.  The area was searched by patrol officers and the KPD K-9.  No firearm or additional evidence was located and no impact point for the 9mm bullets was found.

The investigation is continuing and additional details will be released if they become available.
