A scorned husband is suspected of shooting his wife and a wheelchair-bound man at a Pasco home Tuesday in what police are calling a love triangle gone awry.
Pasco police responded at 12:45 p.m. to a report of shots being fired at a home at 2315 E. Alvina St., said Capt. Jim Raymond.
Multiple patrol units were nearby and quickly arrived at Freddie Nunez's house, finding Nunez, 34, and Isabelle Pina, 20, with gunshot wounds, Raymond said.
Pina's husband, Saul Guzman, 22, was arrested about two blocks away when officers spotted and stopped his white van. Raymond said he allegedly shot the two because he suspected they were lovers.
Guzman was booked into the Franklin County jail on suspicion of assault.
An infant and two young girls who reportedly are Pina's children also were at Nunez's home, but were not injured.
It was not immediately known how many shots were fired, but Raymond said Pina and Nunez did not appear to have life-threatening injuries.
Both were taken to Lourdes Medical Center in Pasco. Their conditions were not immediately available.
This is not the first time Nunez has been shot. In 1995, he was shot twice in the back by a friend who apparently was trying to recover drug money.
Nunez was left paralyzed from the waist down, and the shooter, who claimed self-defense, was acquitted.
On Tuesday, officers spent most of the afternoon collecting evidence in the city's first shooting of the year.
Yellow crime scene tape was strung around Nunez's home, while neighbors stood outside their homes and on street corners wondering what happened.
One neighbor said she was inside her house putting her kids down for a nap when she heard sirens outside. She was shocked when she realized the cop cars had stopped at the house right around the corner.
