One person is dead and five others are injured following a series of shootings in Pasco that police say may be gang related.
Three shootings occurred within a 24-hour span and appear to be connected, said Capt. Jim Raymond.
The first shooting late Tuesday left three men with non-life threatening injuries, police said. At least a dozen shots were fired by two armed suspects into a car on the 800 block of Margaret Street. The suspects ran away before police arrived.
Police are looking for an 18-year-old man who may be connected with Tuesday’s shooting. The man is also wanted on multiple felony warrants.
Around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, two suspects walked up on a parked car on the 800 block of West Marie Street and opened fire, Raymond said. Three people inside of the car were shot multiple times.
Anthony Guerrero, 20, died early Thursday morning and another was taken to a local hospital with critical injuries, law enforcement officials said. The third person suffered non-life threatening wounds.
The suspects — who fired an “extensive” amount of rounds into the car — fled on foot and have not been identified.
As police were on West Marie Street, shots were fired into a house on the 400 block of N. Cedar Street, Raymond said. Police say no one was in the house during the drive-by shooting and no injuries were reported.
Police found multiple shell casings in the street after witnesses reported hearing the shots.
Police say the investigation is ongoing.
