Neighbors React to Kennewick Shooting

KENNEWICK, Wash. - A mother and 10-year-old son were in their apartment on West Fifth Avenue in Kennewick when bullets came through the front of their home.  

Many neighbors are nervous and said it reminded them of a fatal shooting that happened in June 2004 on the corner of West Fifth and South Rainier.

A 16-year-old male was shot and killed.

Kennewick Police said the latest shooting could possibly be gang related.  The bullets just missed the mother and son by two feet. 

Neighbors are upset and said there are kids playing in the area all time. 

TJ Buckley lives across the street and said the violence was disturbing.

Buckley said, "I just want to be left alone I don't want to bother people and I don't want to be bothered either.  It's beyond words right now because this is suppose to be a quiet place."

Kennewick Police are still looking for the people that are responsible for the shooting.

There was a black Chevy pick-up truck seen leaving the area just after the incident. 

Contact police if you have any information.
