Possible shots fired

Deputies arrested two men for an apparent gang-related shooting outside of a Sifton-area bar early Friday morning.

A 12:33 a.m. 911 call brought deputies to the Avenue Restaurant and Bar, 9115 N.E. 117th Ave., where there was a reported disturbance with possible shots fired.

Deputies followed a vehicle they spotted leaving the bar and arrested the two people inside, Johny Hudson, 24, and Javontae N. Gibson, 19, for the alleged shooting that happened in the parking lot area of the restaurant, Clark County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Duncan Hoss said.

Deputies made contact with patrons, but did not identify a victim.

Investigators with the Safe Streets Task Force, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office Tactical Detective Unit and the Southwest Washington Interagency Gang Enforcement team are continuing their investigating.

If anyone has any information about the incident, they are asked to call Sgt. Tim Huberty at 360-487-4728.
