A suspect is at large after a shooting at a party near campus that resulted in two non-life threatening injuries early Sunday morning, according to a Pullman Police Department news release.

At about 1:45 a.m., Pullman Police officers heard two gunshots on Duncan Lane as they were responding to a noise complaint in the 1000 block of Duncan.

When officers arrived, they found numerous people running in all directions.

Officers located two victims with gunshot wounds — a 19-year-old man with a wound to his right torso, and a 17-year-old man with a wound to his arm. Both victims were transported to Pullman Regional Hospital, according to the release. The 19-year-old was later released from the hospital. Both victims are from the King County area of Washington and are not WSU students.

Investigation revealed that a group of people who attended the party surrounded a vehicle attempting to leave the area. The group was trying to forcibly remove someone from the vehicle when shots were fired from the vehicle, striking the victims, according to the release. The crowd scattered and the vehicle fled before officers arrived.

The weapon is believed to be a handgun and has not been recovered.

Detectives are following up on leads.

Shortly after the shooting, WSU officials issued an alert to students via the emergency notification system because the location is adjacent to the WSU campus.
