A family fight ended with one man being shot in Burnett, just south of Buckley.
According to Pierce County Detective Sergeant Gary Sanders, deputies were called around 11:26 a.m. on the morning of Jan. 16 to the Burnett Store at the Chevron gas station to the report of a man with gun wounds at the store.
The man’s name was not officially released, but was identified at the store as Joseph Prime by his younger brother Cory, 23.
Cory said his phone didn’t have any service at their home, located close to the convenience store, which is why he and his father drove Joseph to the store to get help.
Sanders said Joseph was shot multiple times in the torso, arm and leg, and was transported to a local hospital, where he is in stable condition.
The gun used was a handgun, he added.
“At the time, the suspect was outstanding, wasn’t cooperating, so we called the S.W.A.T team and searched the area,” Sanders said, adding the suspect turned himself in shortly after 2:15 p.m. the same day.
The suspect was identified by Cory as Anthony Jonathan Prime, Cory’s younger brother.
Officers from Buckley, Orting and Bonney Lake assisted the Sheriff’s Department, Sanders said.
