Grandview police find gun inside stuffed animal
GRANDVIEW, Wash. - Grandview detectives are investigating a case of a fired gunshot that led to officers finding a gun hidden in a stuffed animal.
Grandview Police Department (GPD) officers arrived at the 400 block of E 2nd Street after a shot was reportedly fired in that area around 11:43 p.m., Sunday.
Reports said a woman left her house and went to an occupied vehicle, pulled a gun from her waistband and fired a shot into the air. She then went back inside her house.
Police surrounded her house which had two other people inside.
The suspect, another woman and a man refused to exit in the standoff. After two hours, the three occupants exited and police arrested them, GPD officials said.
"We saw women coming out with their babies and they were holding the babies in front of them, using them as basically shields," said Jonathan Sanchez who witnessed the standoff.
Officers searched the house and found a gun that may have been used in the incident hidden inside a stuffed animal that was being kept in a crib.
Reports said large amounts of marijuana were also found being processed and the LEAD Drug Task Force assisted in the investigation.
All three suspects face charges of marijuana manufacture, maintain a drug dwelling and child endangerment as detectives continue to investigate this case.
