Shelton Police Investigating Shooting

The Shelton Police Department, with assistance from the the Mason County Sheriff’s Office, is investigating an altercation involving a gun that occurred Wednesday night on Mason Street in Shelton. According to a news release, Shelton officers responded to the 1600 block about 11:30 PM. Upon arrival, they discovered a man had been shot twice. He was immediately transported to Mason General Hospital with non-life threatening gunshot wounds.

A preliminary investigation indicates the shooting stemmed from an argument that occurred several hours earlier between a resident in the 1600 block of Mason Street and family members of the man who was shot.

Following the initial argument, the subject and a female friend returned to the Mason Street home with a baseball bat and a large flashlight to confront the resident regarding the earlier argument. When the subject came on to the property and struck the resident, the resident shot the subject twice. That resident is cooperating with investigators.

At this point, nobody has been arrested or charged. However, the investigation continues.
