FUGITIVE CAPTURED April 22, 2017 —
Convicted felon and shooting suspect, Vicente Miron, was arrested by Othello Police and booked into the Adams County Jail on Saturday.

Othello Police say convicted felon, Vicente Miron, is wanted for a shooting that happened at an apartment on Sunday morning.

Officers say Miron and three other suspects snuck into the apartment while three men slept. Miron pulled a gun on one of the men and pointed it at his head. Police say the victim was able grab Miron’s hand and move the gun away as Miron fired a round — missing the victim — but piercing a wall and going into another apartment that was occupied, but no one was hurt. From there, police say the victim and Miron struggled for the gun and a fight broke out between all three victims and Miron’s crew. During the fight, police say Miron pointed the gun at the victim again and pulled the trigger three times — but the gun did not go off. All four suspects took off in a car described as an older, brownish Toyota Camry.

The charges on his Adams County warrant are:

  • Assault 1st
  • Assault 2nd
  • Unlawful Possession of a Firearm 1st

His felony convictions include:

  • Rioting with a deadly weapon
  • Residential Burglary
  • Theft
  • Eluding

Police say the firearm used, a small black revolver, has not been recovered.

Miron’s considered ‘armed and dangerous’ and may be hiding in the Tri-Cities.
