FORKS — After three days, police are still searching for a 30-year-old man suspected of shooting of an acquaintance early Sunday.
The suspect, Lombardo Ceja-Gomez, “is considered armed and dangerous,” Forks Police Chief Mike Powell said Tuesday. “He’s still on the loose. We’re still searching.”
The victim, 22-year-old Juan Ortiz-Cornego, was shot once in the right side while he sat in the driver’s seat of a car parked on Calawah Way.
Ortiz-Cornego was airlifted in critical condition to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. He was later treated and released, Powell said.This full report appears in today’s Peninsula Daily News, on sale throughout Clallam County. Or click onto “Subscribe” to order your copy via U.S. mail.
