OMAK – One man was hospitalized and another arrested after an apparent altercation Feb. 10 on North Juniper Street.

Omak Police Sgt. Darren Duncan was called just before 2 a.m. to a report of two men fighting, with two gunshots heard.

He arrived and discovered a fight allegedly had occurred between Dallas D. Wilson, 26, and Nathaniel L. Harris, 40, both of Omak, said Chief Jeff Koplin.

Wilson allegedly had a 9 mm handgun and two shots were fired, the chief said. Harris was taken to Mid-Valley Hospital by LifeLine Ambulance for treatment of a gunshot wound to the lower left abdomen.

He was in stable condition as of Monday afternoon.

Wilson was arrested on suspicion of first-degree assault and booked into Okanogan County Jail.

“It is believed that the two men were fighting over a female,” Koplin said.

Police don’t suspect anyone else of being involved.

Det. Brien Bowling of the Omak Police Department is the primary investigator.

No charges have yet been filed.
