Vancouver police respond to shots fired at apartment complex; one person in custody

One person was in custody late Tuesday after a shooting at an east Vancouver apartment complex that prompted a large police response and a hostile reception from area residents already reeling from a nearby weekend shooting.

No one was injured in the incident but one person, a male, was taken into custody as the suspected gunman, according to Vancouver Police Department Sgt. Tim Huberty.

East Vancouver residents shaken by fatal shooting involving sheriff’s deputies

As Lorenz Soriano looked at the bullet holes in the walls of his bedroom, in his shower and next to his toilet, he couldn’t help but wonder what would’ve happened to him if he’d been home in the early hours of Sunday morning, instead of at work.

Some residents of the Oak Creek Mobile Home Park in east Vancouver were still shaken Monday while they recalled waking to gunshots tearing through their houses. The bullets came as Clark County sheriff’s deputies fatally shot an assault suspect whom the agency said was armed with a handgun.

Council members suggested that the Historic Trust should use the 90-day period after the council’s decision to welcome alternatives to the demolition from third parties.
