CHESAW, Wash. -- Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers says the shooting death of a grouse hunter in a remote area of central Washington is being investigated as a homicide.
The Wenatchee World reports (http://is.gd/HZb8BY ) a man in his 60s from western Washington was killed Monday northeast of Tonasket. The man's name is being withheld until his family is notified.
Rogers says a hunting partner, also from western Washington, called for help from a nearby home at about 7:15 p.m.
He says the hunting partner is currently not a suspect, and no suspects have been identified. But investigators do have "people of interest" they'd like to interview.
