At approximately 11:55 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 18, 2023, Washington State Patrol (WSP) communications received a 9-1-1 call from a subject stating that there was a person rolling around on the ground in the gore point from Interurban to northbound I-5 (map below).

The caller further stated they were next to a blue vehicle, and appeared to be bleeding from the mouth.

Troopers responded to the area but were unable to find the vehicle or subject that appeared to be injured. An area hospital check revealed that an individual was dropped off at Valley General Hospital with a gunshot wound.

In talking to the witness he stated that he was driving the vehicle when someone driving a white older model Chevrolet Camaro with large rims shot at his vehicle. The passenger drove him to the hospital and immediately left with the vehicle. He also stated that the person also sustained some kind of wound to his neck.

Troopers along with allied agencies were unable to find the vehicle or the individual that drove away from the hospital.
