Coulee City man arrested after report of a shot fired


COULEE CITY, Wash. (11DEC2015) – A 29-year-old Coulee City man is in the Grant County Jail after allegedly firing a rifle, causing Coulee City schools to lock down temporarily this morning, the county sheriff’s office reports.

David E. Chapman was arrested without incident Friday morning at his home in a trailer park in the 36800 block of Road I.8 Northeast in Coulee City. Chapman is alleged to have pointed a rifle at his brother during an argument at the home Thursday night. That incident was not reported until Friday morning.

Friday morning, a witness told deputies Chapman stepped out of his RV around 7:30 a.m. with a rifle and fired one shot. The witness wasn’t certain where Chapman was aiming. Deputies responded and took Chapman into custody without incident. A spent shell casing and a rifle were found inside Chapman’s RV.

Chapman is in jail on suspicion of one count of second-degree assault-domestic violence and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Nobody was injured.
