MOSES LAKE, Wash. – Deputies have arrested two men and are investigating a drive-by shooting at a home in the Larson Housing area.

Moses Lake police found and arrested Perez after finding a handgun and drug paraphernalia on him.

Both suspects are being held in Grant County Jail while deputies investigate.

No injuries were reported in this shooting.
