Benton County Deputies Arrest Man at Location of Drive-By Shooting
Kennewick Police arrest man at same location as drive-by shooting
32-year-old Shelby Haddock
KENNEWICK, WA - Benton County Sheriff Deputies have arrested a man at the same place where a drive-by shooting took place the night before.
Deputies say just after midnight Wednesday morning, the Benton County Gang Enforcement Team was serving a warrant to arrest 32-year-old Shelby Haddock at the Santiago Sunset Estates Trailer Park on Steptoe Street, at a trailer on the 100 block.
Deputies say police officers from Kennewick and Richland came to help when Haddock armed himself with knives and refused to cooperate. Deputies say Haddock is a known, documented gang member, who also had a shotgun within reach.
When Haddock wouldn't cooperate, deputies say a Richland Police Officer shot him with rubber bullets, but he still wouldn't give up. Deputies say when a Kennewick Police Officer shot him with a bean bag bullet, he put down the knives and gave in.
Deputies say there was a baby in a back room of the trailer at the time, but no one else got hurt.
Paramedics took Haddock to Trios Health where he was treated for some minor bruises and released to law enforcement. Deputies arrested and booked him into the Benton County Jail for felony harassment charges and other warrants.
Late Monday night, Kennewick Police Officers say someone in a late 1960s black Chevy pickup shot a car several times that was parked in front of the same trailer home where Haddock was arrested. No one got hurt.

CrimeStoppers issued a wanted bulletin for Haddock last month for escaping community custody. Police say he originally faced charges for vehicular assault, and failure to appear in court on charges of identity theft. Investigators say his arrest is NOT related to Monday night's drive-by shooting.
