MOUNT VERNON, Wash. – Whatcom County Sheriff’s Deputies helped catch two men wanted in connection with a drive by shooting in Mount Vernon.

Sergeant Kevin Moyes say Mount Vernon Police alerted them of a shooting on Interstate-5 near Walmart shortly after 5:00 p.m.

With the help of Homeland Security’s helicopter and a Bellingham Police canine unit the suspects’ abandoned car was found off of Chuckanut Drive near the Teddy Bear Cove area.

Moyes says the suspects made their way down a steep embankment and were attempting to blend in with swimmers.

They were taken into custody without incident.
