Detectives investigating two shootings overnight in Vancouver

By , Columbian Breaking News Reporter

Detectives are following up on two shootings that were reported overnight in Vancouver.

Witnesses reported hearing shots fired about 11 p.m. Tuesday near East 30th Street and Grand Boulevard, near Vancouver’s Rose Village neighborhood, Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman Kim Kapp said. Responding officers initially didn’t locate any victims or involved parties.

However, a short time later a victim called 911 from a 7-Eleven to report that their car had been shot at near the intersection of 30th and Grand and that the vehicle had three bullet holes and a broken rear window, Kapp said.

Officers collected evidence of a shooting and learned the suspect vehicle was described as a white SUV, Kapp said.

Soon after the shooting was reported, a few blocks away a vehicle hit a curb and crashed into a fence and the two occupants fled the scene, Kapp said. The vehicle involved doesn’t match the description of that involved in the shooting and there is no indication that crash was connected to the shooting.

About two hours later, officers responded to another shooting reported about 4 miles across town.

A witness called 911 about 1 a.m. after hearing shots fired following an argument in front of a residence, 9802 S.E. Sixth St., Kapp said.

The witness said a man in a dark colored SUV and a female on a bicycle were arguing, and then three to four shots were fired before both people fled the scene, Kapp said. Arriving officers did not locate the suspect or victim, but several casings were located in the area the caller described.

No injuries were reported in either shooting, Kapp said, and no victims have shown up at any local hospitals. She added that detectives are following up on both incidents.
