MOSES LAKE, Wash. — Two men were shot about 2 a.m. today in the gravel parking lot of a wildlife access area near Moses Lake.

Grant County Undersheriff Dave Ponozzo says deputies responded to a report of gunshots and found the victims. They’ve been taken to Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake, condition unknown.

Ponozzo says the men don’t appear to be hunters and it’s unknown what they were doing in the parking lot. There was no vehicle when they were found.

Detectives are searching the parking lot for evidence and waiting to talk to the victims to determine the motive for the shooting and identify a suspect.
