MOSES LAKE - A man was shot at a convenience store near an elementary school in Moses Lake Thursday afternoon.

An ambulance and the Moses Lake police were sent to the Astro Quick Mart on Pioneer Way to help a person with a gunshot wound at about 1:20 p.m. today.

The store serves as a gas station and is near Chief Moses Middle School and Garden Heights Elementary School. Both schools were locked down until 1:45 p.m. as a safety precaution.

Law enforcement began searching for a dark colored SUV and stopped one on state Route 17 near Road 3. Two suspects have been detained while the investigation is underway.

Police are not releasing any more information at this time.

    It was reported that the man was completely naked by a shop worker near there. Seems odd that the shooting took place at the gas station. One would think he was "caught" somewhere else and walked there for help. Either way, it's strange
