Officers with the Longview Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit on Wednesday arrested three people in connection with a January shooting in the 1000 block of Seventh Avenue.
Police officers Wednesday arrested Jacob Dominick Nello, 35, of Kelso on suspicion of first-degree assault, criminal conspiracy, residential burglary, first-degree robbery, first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm and felony drug possession.
Two other individuals, both transients, were already in custody at the Cowlitz County jail for other charges. The prosecuting attorney’s office has requested charges of criminal conspiracy and first-degree robbery for 35-year-old Megan Rose Vivian and first-degree robbery, residential burglary, attempted first-degree assault, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and criminal conspiracy for 33-year-old Brandon Burris Decker.
Just past noon on Jan. 11, officers responded to reports of gunshots in an apartment building on Seventh Avenue. No one was injured, and officers found no one inside the apartment in question. They did find what appeared to be a bullet hole in the outside door.
According to a press release, patrol officers, street crimes unit members and criminal investigators searched the area for suspects but did not locate them at the time.
Detectives then executed a search warrant for the residence. No guns were recovered from the residence, but other charges may be pending.
