A man died of gunshot wounds in rural Moses Lake, the Grant County Sheriff’s Department said Sunday.

Grant County deputies and Moses Lake police responded at 8:15 a.m. Sunday to calls of shots fired in the Pershing Drive and the Larson Housing areas, according to a post on the Sheriff’s Office Facebook page. Officers upon arriving discovered a 27-year-old man who appeared to have been shot at 1106 Arlington Drive.
