Shots Fired in Kennewick

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Shots break the silence of a quiet Kennewick neighborhood. Neighbors say they are worried because of all the kids in the area.

Kennewick Police's Criminal Apprehension Team responded to this house on East 14th Avenue after they got several reports of shots being fired. Police say once they secured the house, they found out that there had been an argument and that one man had fired several shots in the air after leaving the house.

Jack Shupe says, "It could hurt people. We got a lot of kids in the neighborhood. I don't think people realize even if you fire the guns in the air, where do you think those bullets are going to land? I mean it doesn't make any sense to me."

Police say they interviewed several witnesses at the scene but none of them were very cooperative. Police were able to recover a gun from Robert Sainz, one of the men involved in the argument but are still on the lookout for the man that fired the shots.
