Man shot inside home in city


November 29, 2017

A group of gunmen burst into a Goldendale home Monday night, shot the resident, and bolted in a damaged SUV.

According to the Goldendale Police Department, officers responded at about 10:49 p.m. Monday to shouts from a man saying he’d been shot. He was at his residence in the 100 block of Columbus, at the intersection of Columbus and Broadway and right across the street from the Goldendale United Methodist Church. The man was taken to Klickitat Valley Health, where he was treated for his gunshot wound.

Goldendale Police officers interviewed the victim, who told them he was in his home when two, possibly three, men wearing masks kicked in his front door. They entered, fired one time at the victim who was hit in his side, then left just as quickly. They said nothing and took nothing.

The victim’s wound was determined to be non-life threatening.

The victim gave a statement that has led the Goldendale Police to develop a possible primary suspect, according to a GPD press release. Police believe the suspect could be from the Yakima area. The victim believes the shooter is a person they know. No motive has been identified at this time, but the police are still working with the victim to identify possible motives.

The suspects were seen leaving the area in a white SUV with a rear quarter panel that is damaged.

The Goldendale Police are actively investigating and interviewing all possible witnesses in this case. No further information is being released because the matter is still under investigation.
