More investigation of fatal Walla Walla shooting



WALLA WALLA, Wash. (AP) — The Walla Walla prosecutor has asked the sheriff’s office to continue its investigation of a fatal shooting in a break-in at a Walla Walla store.

Prosecutor Jim Nagle told the Union-Bulletin ( ) the information he has seen from investigators so far makes no conclusion or recommendation.

The family and friends of the man who was shot, 22-year-old Cesar Chavira, have been marching and demonstrating, demanding that the store owner be charged.

The owner of the New York Store Western Outfitters, John Saul, lives on the property. His lawyer, Michael Hubbard, says Saul was defending his property from a burglar May 4 when he fired.
