Are Armed Gangs Threatening Pasco Mobile Home Park Residents?
In the aftermath of a couple of gun-related incidents in a Pasco mobile home park, Police say gang activity cannot be ruled out.
First, on Friday August 27th, around 9:18 PM, Police responded to calls about shots being fired in the Flamingo Village Mobile Home Park at the corner of 28th and A street, near the Blue Bridge.
Officers responded to Homestead, which is the closest street inside near Highway 395, and found several spent shell casings in the area. One home was struck by a bullet, the home was occupied no one was hurt. It was one block over from the area where the shots were fired, and it's believed their hitting this home was accidental.
One vehicle was also struck by a round. Some witness reports indicated a truck and possibly small car involved, and they may have been shooting at each other.
Then on Monday of this week, August 30th, Officers were called to Atom Drive, where they were told there were three vehicles whose occupants were yelling at residents, claiming they had gang affiliation. One or more of them displayed at least one pistol (either real or a replica) tucked in one of the person's waistband.
The vehicles fled the are just prior to the arrival of Police. Both cases, say police could be gang related. Anyone who may have information is urged to call (509)-628-0333. All leads can be confidential.
