FORKS: Shooting suspect remains at large

>

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.
