MOSES LAKE — Detectives are seeking information from the public after a man was shot several times and pepper sprayed during an apparent robbery attempt near Moses Lake early Tuesday morning.

About 2:15 a.m. investigators were made aware of a gunshot victim arriving at Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake. The 34-year-old victim was reportedly shot several times and had burns on his face, which are suspected to be from pepper spray. The Grant County Sheriff’s Office reports the man underwent surgery and is in stable condition.

The victim said he was fixing his broken down vehicle in the vicinity of Road 4 Northeast and Road L Northeast when he was approached by an armed male who attempted to rob him. A fight broke out between the two men, which ended when the victim was shot several times and pepper sprayed.

“The victim says he then drove himself to the emergency room. Further details about the incident are unclear. Detectives impounded the victim’s vehicle as evidence. They also searched a several-mile area around Roads 4 and L Northeast but have not been able to find the shooting scene,” stated the sheriff’s office in a news release.

If you have any information in the incident contact the sheriff’s office at 509-762-1160 or email crimetips@grantcountywa.gov. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
