A Umatilla man was arrested in Richland on Monday night for a shooting that sent one woman to the hospital.

Richland Police have booked Matthew McQuin, 45, in Benton County Jail on attempted murder charges. The victim, a woman, was taken to a local hospital with gunshot wounds, but police have provided no further information on her condition.

Police responded to WinCo Foods in Richland around 7:30 p.m. Monday, and found the woman with a gunshot wound. McQuin surrendered to police inside the store.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the victim was reported to have been released from the hospital.

Umatilla Police Chief Darla Huxel said McQuin is known to local law enforcement. He has been arrested several times in Umatilla County for possession of controlled substances, driving under the influence of intoxicants and fleeing or eluding a police officer. His most recent charges were in August 2017 for driving under the influence of intoxicants.
