Assault Suspect Hits Victim With Car AND Shoots Him
A 20-year-old Richland man is in the Benton County jail facing not only 1st Degree Assault, but also Vehicular Assault after a pair of incidents.
Last Friday, a 'disagreement' occurred in the 2500 block of Duportail Street, during which a gun was fired at a building, say police. Several minor injuries resulted from what police say is an ongoing feud between two groups of people.
Then on Sunday, police responded to the Columbia Playfields in the 1500 block of Mansfield Street around 7:45pm. A male victim was not only hit by a car, but also sustained a gunshot wound. However, the injuries were not life threatening and he was taken to Kadlec Medical Center.
Police now say Robert W. Hore of Richland is in custody facing a wide variety of charges stemming from the two incidents. No other details were released.
