The Aberdeen Police Department does not believe the shooting on Sunday morning January 27th was an act of random violence, and that they believe all parties knew each other. 

Their investigation continues, but Lt Green With the Aberdeen Police Department gave this update Sunday afternoon.
On 1-27-19 at 4:10 AM, Aberdeen Police Officers were dispatched to a report of two subjects shot in the area of the 1000 block of Ash Street, Aberdeen.

Aberdeen Officers arrived and located a 21-year-old Hoquiam woman and a 26-year-old Hoquiam man who had been shot in the backyard of a residence at that location.

While Aberdeen Officers investigated the scene, Hoquiam Police Officers quickly located the suspect vehicle as it drove west on Cherry Street in Hoquiam.

Hoquiam Officers attempted to stop the car and a subject fled the vehicle on foot.

A police K9 from the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office responded along with a Cosmopolis Police Officer and additional GHSO Deputies.

Two males, a 39-year-old Hoquiam resident and a 29-year-old Aberdeen resident, were arrested for investigation of Robbery 1st Degree.

The third subject, a 34-year-old Aberdeen resident, surrendered upon the arrival and of the police K9. He was also arrested for investigation of Robbery 1st Degree.



The shooting victims were treated at the scene by Aberdeen Fire Department Paramedics and transported to Grays Harbor Community Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Aberdeen Police Detectives processed the suspect vehicle and are currently processing the crime scene and residence for evidence. A Washington State Patrol narcotics police K9 assisted Aberdeen Detectives in their evidence searches.

Our Detectives are still investigating the incident and we do not believe it was a random act and the parties were familiar with each other.
