KENNEWICK, Wash. - Kennewick Police have arrested a second suspect in the burglary/shooting at 206 N. Buntin Street early Tuesday morning.
Armando Martin Rodriguez-Willis has been booked into the Benton County jail for 1st degree burglary. Initially police were called to a burglary in progress and when they arrived the body of 20 year old Tyler A. Stock was discovered at the residence. Yesterday Police arrested the home owner Ramon Madrigal for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. Madrigal is currently being held on a 72 hour hold at the jail, he has not been charged in any crime related to the shooting.
Police say state law does not allow you to shoot just anyone on your property.
"To use lethal force you have to make sure you can articulate why your safety or the life safety of someone else is in eminent harm, not just for trespassing, not just for stealing something. Your life has to actually be threatened," said Captain Mike Cobb with the Richland Police Department.
Police say the "motive for the burglary was clearly drug related with investigators finding drugs in a backpack which had been discarded outside of the residence along with drugs in the home."
Police have not released information on how many times Stock was shot or where he was hit.
