Klickitat County Sheriff’s respond to a man firing a gun

On July 8, 2020 the Klickitat County Sheriff’s Office responded to a man firing a gun in front of 580 Oak Ridge Road, cabin 1.

Upon arrival, it was determined a mother had come home and found her 18 year-old daughter drinking with some older men outside around a picnic table.  The mother became upset and threw a beer down on the table which resulted in some being splattered by beer.  The arguing continued which led to Jose Sanchez Morales entering the cabin and getting a Bersa 9mm and firing it into the air.  Sanchez Morales allegedly then pointed the firearm at the victim.  

The firearm was recovered and Sanchez Morales was arrested for Assault in the Second Degree.
