NISQUALLY — Thurston County sheriff’s investigators were still trying to sort out the details of a shooting late Saturday night in Nisqually in which a victim was shot in the wrist and leg.
Sgt. Cameron Simper said a 22-year-old suspect who is a convicted felon was taken into custody on a charge of first-degree possession of a firearm around 11:30 p.m. Saturday.
A 19-year-old man was found shot twice near the parking lot of the AM/PM gas station and convenience store at 10222 Martin Way E. The victim was in stable condition Monday with non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspect and victim were not cooperating with investigators, according to Simper, and the suspect has not been charged in connection with the shooting.
Several shots were fired from a semi-automatic weapon and shell casings were found inside and outside of the victim’s vehicle, he said.
Two vehicles were confiscated, one with broken windows and a bullet hole to a window.
