Deputies say  Rodrigo Quiroz, and Melchor Celaya, both 19-year-old Hispanic males, are wanted in connection with the incident. Officials say they were involved in targeted and not random drive-by shootings in and around Mattawa Thursday morning.

Officials did not say how many homes or buildings were shot at, or vehicles.

They were last seen by witnesses (who saw at least one of the incidents and got a description of their vehicle) near State Route 243 and Road 24 Southwest.

That's where their abandoned vehicle was located.

No injuries were reported, but Deputies say they are armed, are possibly moving on foot, and are considered dangerous.

A third Hispanic male, identity unknown, is also being sought in connection with the shootings. Anyone with any information is urged to call the Grant County Sheriff at 509-762-1160. All calls can be anonymous.
