(Warden, WA) Grant County Detectives this morning are investigating the death of a man in Warden.

Just before midnight Sept. 25, Grant County Deputies answered a 9-1-1 call for a disturbance in the 6700 block of State Route 262 East near Mardon Resort in south central Grant County. The person calling reported a disturbance and said a body was loaded into a car and the car sped off.

About 30 minutes later, Warden Police answered a call for help for a man with a gunshot wound at 313 Main Street. Once there, Police and Deputies found a man dead in a car outside an apartment building. Early indication is the victim died from gunshot wound.

It’s early in the investigation and many facts are not yet known. The Coroner has custody of the body and the vehicle has been seized as evidence. Witness interviews are underway. Detectives are processing evidence at a few different locations, and it appears the SR262 and Main Street incidents are connected.

It will likely be several hours before additional information is released. More information will be sent when available. The identity of the victim will be released by the Coroner once confirmed and family has been notified.

Warden Police, Grant County Sheriff’s Office, Othello Police, Washington State Patrol, Grant County Coroner’s Office and the Multi Agency Communications Center all helped with this incident.
