MOSES LAKE — A Ritzville man was shot in the abdomen Tuesday night in the Larson community during an attempted robbery.

The Grant County Sheriff’s Office says the 23-year-old victim was sitting in a parked car with a 17-year-old girl at the curb near Arlington Drive and Lowry Street when they were approached by several people who attempted to rob them.

The man attempted to drive away but was reportedly shot in the abdomen by one of the unknown suspects, who fled the area on foot after the shooting. The injured male, whose identity is being withheld, was transported to Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake for treatment. Deputies and officers with the Moses Lake Police Department searched the area but were unable to find any of the suspects. The sheriff’s office says investigators are following up on tips and leads.
