Kennewick Police Chief pursues Officer-Involved Shooting

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. – The police chief says he'll meet with the Benton County prosecutor to discuss the next step in the case of a man officers wounded last month.

Police chased Dennis Skellenger after officers say he tried to get a cash refund at an auto parts store by returning merchandise purchased with a stolen credit card.

Police say an officer shot Skellenger near Horse Heaven Hills Park after he pulled a gun.

Chief Ken Hohenberg says the Benton County prosecutor is waiting for evidence from the Washington State Patrol Crime Lab before deciding whether to charge the man.
