Gang Fight

Posted on 24th January 2014 at 16:57

Longview Police are looking into what may have been a gang fight that took place in broad daylight yesterday afternoon near 32nd and Washington Way. Around 2:10 pm, there was a fight reported in the parking lot of Miller’s Market, with several males wearing blue bandannas were fighting with several males wearing red bandannas. Witnesses say that one of the combatants had a baseball bat, and hit one of the other people in the head. When that person fell, the fight suddenly ended, with the aggressors piling into a Honda Civic and speeding off. Officers were able to identify that car, eventually tracking it to a home in the 500 block of 25th Avenue. Several people were questioned, with two suspects identified and at least one arrest made. This investigation is continuing, and it’s possible other arrests could be made. The person hit with the bat was taken to St. John Medical Center; his condition hasn’t been updated.
