FUGITIVE WANTED IN OTHELLO April 19, 2017 —
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.
