Teenager Arrested After Fatal Shooting in Downtown Yakima
Police say a 15-year-old boy is under arrest after a fatal shooting in downtown Yakima on Tuesday. The 29-year-old male victim was shot multiple times at South 4th Street and Chestnut Avenue just before 6:00 p.m. Tuesday. The 15-year-old suspect was booked into the juvenile detention center for first degree murder. Police are still looking for another suspect in what they say was a gang related shooting.
