Teen burglars shot at a Tri-City man defending a neighbor’s house. He fired back

By Cameron Probert

Kennewick police are hunting for a pair of teens who traded bullets with a man after they burglarized his neighbor’s house.

Miguel Barajas, 29, was at home on the 3300 block of South Gum Street about 4:20 p.m. Tuesday when he heard a loud crash next door and thought someone was breaking in.

He grabbed a gun and went to check, Kennewick police said.

As he walked toward the house, he spotted two boys, who looked like they were about 16 to 18 years old, dash out of the house. They got into a tan or gray Honda sedan and drove toward Barajas.

The sedan slowly approached him and one teen fired a shot at him, and Barajas fired back, said police.

The area was searched and a law enforcement canine did a track, but as of 4:15 p.m. Thursday the suspect had not been found, Prickett said.

The suspect is described as a white male wearing blue jeans and a white top.

The sheriff’s office will continue to investigate the incident, said Prickett.

Gun deal gone bad’ leads to shooting in Meridian

By Bianca Moorman
Meridian police are investigating a shooting that sent two people to the hospital Thursday night in Meridian.

Meridian Police Chief Benny Dubose said police responded to a shooting at 8:31 p.m. Thursday on the 4700 block of 8th Street in Meridian and found two men had been shot. One victim was shot in the torso and the other was shot in the face, Dubose said. The victims were taken to two separate hospitals in separate vehicles, Dubose said. The injuries are non-life threatening, Dubose said.

At the location, the seller tried to rob the buyer, Dubose said. Gunshots were fired that resulted in the buyer getting shot in the torso, Dubose said. The seller did not get shot, but a person with the seller was shot in the face, Dubose said.

The incident was a gun deal gone wrong, investigators said. One of the victims, the buyer, saw an advertisement on social media for a firearm and agreed to meet the seller at a location in the 4700 block of 8th Street.

Quite the weekend, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes, with two inconvenienced and another three in the wind. With any luck they’ll appear on TAH’s FGS one day soon.

    Hold up on them thar’ sonar buoys Boss man. Can’t count but one in the wind. Them two dirtbags in the FIRST story is a repeat from yesterday. Not that there is anything wrong with re-runs.

    Take solace in the fact that the Clinton County is prolly named for former guv DeWitt Clinton, NOT BJ Willy or any of his adopted ancestors. IIRC, at one point in time, there was a city, township, village, or county named for ol’ DeWitt. Hope they find the perp before, as you said ‘Ed, he shows back up here again.

    Now-a-days smart move is to buy and sell at the popo station to anyone meeting up on the “social media.” Here about that kinda rip off constantly.

    Winchester ’73 wannabe? Where’s the matching 6 shooter? Did our latest, newest commentator take his screen name from that steely eyed Ms Thang in the pic? Whose Army is she in? I’d do a tour of duty with her.

      Receiver is too short for a ’73, more likely a ’92, ’94, or similar especially given the rifle-length rounds on the belt. Like the case-hardened receiver though.

      At one point a great trivia question was “whose picture has been reproduced most?”. The answer is NOT George Washington, as you might think… but DeWitt Clinton. Remember when cigarette packs (manufactured in their millions daily) had that little blue paper tax stamp on every pack? Clinton’s mug was on that stamp. Oh, and the Erie Canal was derisively named after the governor, too, as Clinton’s Ditch.

        Most likely a 94, if those are the rounds that actually fit it.

        The Winchester 94 was the “modern sporting rifle” of its day. There are millions of them out there. They are still quite useful, especially in more restrictive environments. The 16-inch barrel “Trapper” version in a pistol cartridge like .44 Mag or .45 Colt makes a -fine- vehicle gun or burglar dissuader.
