KENNEWICK, WA - Kennewick Police are still hoping to find the man suspected of shooting another man. Kennewick Police had been helping Richland officers looking for another arson suspect on the 1100 Block of South Yelm Street around 2:00 Monday afternoon. 

While they were there, officers recognized Jesus Salas-Rubio and saw him run away. Officers used a K9 and thermal technology to find him. Officers told people in the area to lock their doors extra precautions while they checked the area. 

After several hours of looking and not finding anyone, officers from the US Marshal's Task Force, Kennewick, and Richland Police ended the search. 

The 30-year-old has a first degree assault warrant out for his arrest. Police are considering him armed and dangerous. 

If you know anything about where Salas-Rubio may be, call KPD at (509) 628-0333.
