1 killed, 1 injured in Klickitat County shooting

GOLDENDALE (AP) — An apparent argument between two men ended with one dead and the other critically wounded in a shooting in the rural community of Cleveland in south-central Washington.

Klickitat County Sheriff Rick McComas tells KIMA a delivery truck driver arrived at the scene Tuesday morning and called for help.

A 79-year-old homeowner, Norman A. Luening, was killed by a shot to the head. A neighbor, 59-year-old Ronald R. Carlsen, was flown to Oregon Health & Science University Hospital in Portland in critical condition.

The sheriff says the two men were the only people involved in the shooting and the motive remains under investigation.
