Posted on 20th August 2013 at 15:46

Longview Police continue to investigate a shooting reported last night. Just after midnight, a woman called 911 from the 300 block of 17th Avenue, reporting that a man had been shot in the arm. She says that the victim was walking down the street, and then asked for help when he saw the woman. Officers finally caught up with the 19 year-old victim, who says that the incident had taken place on the 20th Avenue Bridge over Lake Sacajawea. The victim says that he was approached by the suspect, there was an exchange of some sort, and then the suspect shot him. The suspect is described as a white male in his 30’s, about 5’7” with a thin build. He was reported to be wearing a light-colored hoody and gray sweat pants, with the gun hidden in one of his sleeves. The victim was taken to Saint John Medical Center, where he was treated and released. Longview Police have been checking all around the area, but they haven’t found the suspect.
