Police Arrest Man for Moses Lake Murder

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Grant County Sheriff's Office says deputy U.S. marshals have tracked down a man wanted for a murder in Moses Lake. 

Deputies say Anthony J. Vasquez shot and killed Juan Garcia last week, in the parking lot of the Airport Grocery Mart in Moses Lake. Deputies say Garcia's girlfriend and her 6-year-old son were in the car at the time, but were not injured.

Deputies say Spokane police and U.S. marshals surrounded a house in Spokane on Saturday night after learning Vasquez was there. Spokane police say they tried to get him to surrender, but he bolted out a back door. Officers tracked him down using a police dog and arrested him later that night. 

On Thursday night investigators arrested a man accused of driving Vasquez's getaway car, Alejandro Manzo.

Deputies say hundreds of people called in tips about Vasquez's whereabouts after the shooting.
