Shots fired at mushroom hunter near Blewett Pass

WENATCHEE (AP) — A Leavenworth man says shots were fired at his car after he was mushroom hunting Tuesday afternoon near Blewett Pass.

He told the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office he was driving in the Ruby Creek area when he realized shots were coming from a pickup. One of the two men inside had a gun.

The Leavenworth man says he fired four shots in the air from his own pistol,  then was able to outrun the pickup. When he got home, he found bullet holes in his car. He was not injured.

The Sheriff’s Office says it doesn’t know whether the men in the pickup  were mushroom hunters or what their motive may have been.
