Earlier today there were reports of shots fired at 5225 W Clearwater in Kennewick. Here is an update from the sheriffs about the incident from PIO Sergeant Aaron Clem:

Summary of Incident: at about 12:00 pm officers responded to a disturbance with shots fired in a parking lot of 5225 West Clearwater (Clearwater Bay Apartments).  Witnesses reported two groups of individuals in a confrontation before several shots were fired.  We have at least two shooters involved who both fled the scene in separate vehicles.   Both suspects were reported as black males.  No injuries have been reported at this time.   The suspect vehicles we are looking are described as a burgundy Chevrolet Impala with right front damage and a gold colored Toyota Camry license plate Washington BAX-1321.   Area schools were placed on lock down while officers searched the area however all the schools have returned to normal operations.  Currently investigators are still gathering evidence and talking to witnesses.  This appears to be an isolated incident at this time between people who are known to each other.  We do not believe the general public is in any danger.  We will release additional information once it is available.  If you have any information about this incident, please call 628-0333.
