Jennifer Dowling and KOIN 6 News Staff - VANCOUVER, Wash. (KOIN) -- Police found a man dead after responding to reports of shots fired early Saturday morning in Vancouver.
The Clark County Medical Examiner said 23-year-old Vincent R. Trevino died from "multiple gunshot wounds," and his death is officially classified as a homicide.
In a quiet neighborhood, the shots of gunfire were enough to shake people living there. Local resident Todd Ogden -- who said the situation is a little scary because he moved to Vancouver from a small community in Montana -- first heard 4 gunshots around 4 a.m.
"Then a few seconds and then 8 more," Ogden said. "That's 12 shots total, that means there are bullets flying everywhere."
When officers arrived to the 12500 block of NE 28th Street, they found an adult male already dead in the area. He was found dead near the stop sigh at 126th Avenue and Northeast 28th.
The incident is under investigation.
There is no suspect information at this time, but detectives don't believe there is a threat to the general public.
"I know they told the public not to worry about it," Ogden said, "but how do you not worry about it?"
