Man is Recovering from Gunshot to Hand

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - A 22-year-old man was shot in the hand after police suspect a group of people may have been in a fight on Saturday night.

An eyewitness called 911 saying they'd heard gun shots near the Woodland Park Apartment Complex on 601 South Kent in Kennewick after 9 p.m.  That eyewitness said they saw people running from the area.

Kennewick Police Officers and Detectives were interviewing witnesses at the scene Saturday night.  They said it does not appear to be gang related but they are encountering some language barriers.

The victim seems to be okay.  Officers said he was taken to an area hospital and is being treated for that gunshot wound to his hand.

If you have any information about this shooting you're asked to call the Kennewick Police Department.
