Two juveniles wounded in George shooting

UPDATED: Mon., March 4, 2013, 10:12 a.m.

The Grant County sheriff’s office said two teenagers were shot Sunday night in the town of George.

Spokesman Kyle Foreman said two suspects, one adult and one juvenile, are in custody for shooting one boy and one girl outside of a home in the 200 block of Montmorency Boulevard.

The male victim, who is around 16 years old, was shot in the torso, knee and face, a news release from the sheriff’s office said. The female victim, who is around 14 years old, was shot once in the torso. Both are listed in serious condition.

Hector M. Contreras Rodriguez, 21, of Quincy, is in custody at the Grant County Jail on suspicion of attempted murder, the release said. Another suspect, a 16-year-old boy, is also in custody.

Foreman said the department received a call of shots fired around 9:15 p.m. and arrived at the scene to find two people shot.

They were treated at the scene before they were transported to Quincy Valley Medical Center and eventually taken by helicopter to a trauma hospital.

Foreman said the shooting is not related to another shooting Saturday in Grant County. A 60-year-old man was fatally wounded at his home in Moses Lake.
