MOSES LAKE, Wash. -- Grant County detectives said they arrested the man they think drove the getaway car after a deadly shooting Tuesday night.

The shooting happened at the Airport Grocery Mart on Patton Boulevard just one block from the Big Bend Community College. Officials said the victim was Juan Jesus Garcia, 22, of Moses Lake.  Garcia was found in an SUV in front of the grocery store.

Authorities said they arrested Alejandro Monzo, 18, Thursday.  Detectives believed Monzo drove shooting suspect Anthony Vasquez away from the scene.  Vasquez had still not been found Friday morning.

Police said Vasquez is described as being five foot five inches tall, weighing 180 pounds with black hair.  He is considered armed and dangerous.  Police asked anyone with information on his whereabouts to call 911 immediately.
