MOCLIPS, Wash. (AP) — A 36-year-old man died after being shot during a fight involving multiple people Monday night in Grays Harbor County, authorities said.

Zachery Christensen of Moclips was taken to a fire station for medical aid and pronounced dead at a hospital, according to Grays Harbor County Undersheriff Brad Johansson.

Witnesses told police that Christensen and two others had confronted and assaulted a woman over an alleged theft at a house and that a gun pointed at the woman went off during a struggle.

Johansson said Wednesday that a 45-year-old woman and a 62-year-old man were arrested and booked into jail on second-degree murder charges.

An investigation is ongoing.
