A 24-year-old was arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with a Nov. 6 shooting in central Vancouver. Police say the victim has since died.
Vancouver police responded shortly after 8 p.m. to what was initially reported as a single-vehicle crash in the 6500 block of Northeast Fourth Plain Boulevard, according to a news release.
Upon arrival, officers found the vehicle had a bullet hole in the window. There was a wounded 26-year-old man inside, the news release states.
Officers rendered medical aid until the man was taken to an area hospital; police said last week he suffered critical injuries.
A Tuesday update states the victim did not survive. The police department said the Clark County Medical Examiner’s Office will release the man’s identity and manner of death.
On Tuesday, detectives from Vancouver police and the Washington State Department of Corrections arrested a suspect, Yana N. Cook, in Raymond. Cook was lodged in the Clark County Jail on suspicion of first-degree murder and drive-by shooting.
