MOSES LAKE — A Moses Lake residence was reportedly struck by at least nine bullets early Wednesday morning.

About 1 a.m. a residence on North Buell Drive was hit by nine bullets fired out of an apparent pistol. Nine shell casings were located at the scene. Moses Lake police say several adults and children were inside the home, but there was no injuries. Police have obtained video evidence pertaining to the shooting and are reviewing the video.

A witness told police she does not know who shot at the home, but said believes the suspect vehicle was a white two-door Honda, according to police records.

“The house where the shooting took place is well known to law enforcement, as are the adult occupants of the residence. The adult occupants were not helpful in providing possible suspect information, nor a possible motive for the shooting,” stated the MLPD in a release.

If you have information on the incident contact the Moses Lake Police Department at 509-764-3887.
