A Moses Lake Police officer is recovering after he was reportedly wounded during a shootout with a domestic violence suspect Saturday night.

Spokesperson Kyle Foreman of the Grant County Sheriff's Office says it happened at the Motel 6 in the 2800 block of Driggs Avenue at around 8:20 p.m. when officers were responding to a domestic disturbance call.

"Shortly after the officers arrived, there was an exchange of gunfire between the suspect and police. One Moses Lake police officer was struck by a bullet. He underwent surgery at Samaritan Hospital and is recovering."

Foreman says the suspect, 37-year-old Zachary Allen Stockton, was also shot during the exchange.
