Pasco drive-by shooting is in retaliation in Kennewick shooting
PASCO, Wash. -- Four teenagers were arrested after a drive-by shooting in East Pasco Tuesday night. Pasco Police say it happened around 10:30 at the intersection of A Street and South 4th Avenue.
Neighbor Victoria Rodrgeuz says she's worried. "I'm scared because I have children here in the house," says Rodrigeuz, "I hear gun noise and then three seconds later, I see the cops."
A Pasco Police Officer was sitting down the street when a group of teenagers in a white Honda Accord started shouting at another group of teens at the house at the intersection. Then he heard multiple gunshots fired from the car. He quickly pulled them over and recovered a semi automatic handgun.
