According to reports, the investigation into the shooting with the participation of the Clark County Sheriff’s Deputies continued late Thursday evening. The Hazel Delhi 99 northeast highway is closed for hours.
Just before 11:23 a.m., the sheriff’s office issued a statement confirming the shooting. The statement said that Kamas police will lead the investigation into the incident. Several agencies, including the Washington State Patrol, were at the scene.
It was unclear whether the person shot was armed or had shot at the deputies first. His name and condition has been identified as Kevin Peterson Jr.
The investigation focused on the U.S. Bank of America parking lot, 6829 N.E. Highway 99.
Dispatch records show that the sheriff’s deputies were sent to that address at 5 p.m. On the 29th, through a “suspicious connection” call.

Speaking to our reporter, a witness to a nearby store said he saw an argument between police and a “man” who appeared to be running and then heard gunshots.
Joseph Ozef Webster, 18, was working with a client in the back of a business when he heard the squeak of a tire across the street in a US Bank parking lot.
“You can’t help but look for the crunch of all the tires,” he said.
He said he heard “a lot of gunshots”.
After the shooting, the man was taken by ambulance, and the officers started working on the scene.
