TONASKET, Wash. (AP) — The Okanogan sheriff says two people died and one was seriously hurt after two neighbors shot at each other during an argument in eastern Washington. KREM-TV reports Sheriff Tony Hawley says the shooting was reported near Tonasket on Monday afternoon. Officials say 61-year-old Scott Pollock told deputies that he and his wife had gone to the neighbor’s house to discuss ongoing construction and an argument started. Pollock told deputies he exchanged gunfire with 26-year-old neighbor Raymond Smith, and that he believed gunfire had hit Smith in the chest. Hawley says deputies went to Smith’s house and found Smith and 56-year-old Kimberly Smith dead from gunshot wounds. The circumstances surrounding Kimberly Smith’s death weren’t clear.
