Suspect In Drive-By Shooting Released From Custody


EPHRATA, WA.-The Columbia Basin Herald reports new developments in a case involving a high profile Grant County shooting. The newspaper reports a Grant County judge did not find probable cause for the charges that have been filed against 22-year-old Jesus Torres, of Royal City, in connection with a weekend drive-by shooting in Moses Lake that left two men wounded.

Torres, seen here on the left with his brother Jonathan, turned himself in to police over the weekend and was charged with two counts of first-degree assault and a single count of drive-by shooting, but Judge David Estudillo did not find probable cause for the charges. Torres was released from custody but directed to return to court on Dec. 11 for his arraignment, at which time the probable cause issue is expected to be further argued. Torres Brother is also being sought as a suspect but he remains at large.
