Suspect in Custody for Othello Convenience Store Shooting
One suspect is in custody in connection with a shooting that took place at a mini-mart in Othello early Wednesday morning.
Officers were dispatched to the Pik-A-Pop store in the 1200 block of South First Avenue at 12:45 a.m. after receiving reports a person being shot at the location.
Investigators found several shell casings at the scene and are currently reviewing surveillance video that shows a vehicle fleeing the store’s parking lot at the time of the shooting.

The suspect was arrested in the Tri-Cities area late yesterday.
