OKANOGAN — Two north-central Washington men have been arrested for investigation of first-degree murder in the Sept. 2 shooting death of a Hoquiam man who was hunting grouse near their land.
Okanogan County sheriff’s officers say Adam Jennings, 27, and John Jennings, 57, were arrested Tuesday in the death of Michael Carrigan, 52. The Wenatchee World said the two Chesaw men are father and son.
Undersheriff Joe Somday says no motive has been determined for the shooting.
Carrigan and George Stover, of Hoquiam, were grouse hunting. Carrigan got out of a truck to shoot at a grouse and was shot himself. Stover drove away and called for help.
Shortly after the shooting, deputies seized weapons and ammunition from the Jennings’ home, located about 100 yards from where Carrigan was shot.
