(Moses Lake, WA) The Central Basin Investigation Team continues to investigate the shooting involving a Grant County Deputy early Tuesday morning. Investigators have finished serving a search warrant on the residence and processing the scene of the incident. Along with this they have also conducted several interviews, and it is anticipated this process will continue through the rest of the week.

Information provided to the investigative team is that the subject shot is in serious but stable condition in a Spokane area hospital.

We do not anticipate releasing any further information until either late Wednesday or Thursday morning. At that time we may be ready to release the names of the Deputy and subject that was shot. We appreciate your patience and understand your need for information. However, it is our desire to ensure we release completely accurate information, and in order to do this we need time to further investigate the incident. We will release information as soon as the release would not compromise the investigation.
