A Vancouver man was arrested early Tuesday morning in connection with a Monday shooting in Vancouver’s Rose Village neighborhood, in which a man was wounded and a child was injured by possible shrapnel, both in their legs.
Vancouver police responded to a collision at about 1:40 a.m. near the 1500 block of Northeast 138th Avenue. Arriving officers found a vehicle had left the roadway and rolled over.
The occupants of the vehicle suffered minor injuries. They told police they were chased by the suspect in Monday afternoon’s shooting on East 35th Street, according to a department news release.
Police located the suspect vehicle, and the suspect ran from officers. Police set up a containment area and took the man into custody near the 13000 block of Northeast 24th Circle.
Shuderrin Javion Flentroy, 22, was booked into the Clark County Jail on suspicion of first-degree assault and second-degree assault. Police said more charges could come later.
Members of the department’s Major Crimes Unit, Neighborhood Response Team, Safe Streets Task Force and Traffic Unit responded to process all scenes and continue investigating.
