Sheriff: Shooter targeted teen near Moses Lake

SUNDAY, FEB. 16, 2014, 2:19 P.M.

Police say a 16-year-old boy shot and killed this morning near Moses Lake was targeted, not the victim of a random attack.

No suspect is in custody, however, the Grant County Sheriff’s Office said.

Brandon Michael Mende, 16, was shot around 3 a.m. at a home at 6020 Turnkey Road Northeast in the Larson Housing Area just outside Moses Lake.

Detectives were interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence there today.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (509) 762-1160 or send information to crimetips@co.grant.wa.us. Reference case number 14GS01790. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
