Gang Member Shot. Won’t Cooperate With Yakma Police
Imagine being shot and then not wanting to tell police what happened…that’s normal when officers deal with local gang members and that was the situation during a shooting Wednesday in Yakima. Police found the victim in the street in the 3 hundred block of South Naches Avenue at about 4:20 Wednesday afternoon…witnesses say the shooter walked up to the 19 year old victim…the two exchanged words and shots were fired. The 19 year old was hit once in the hip. He was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released. While the victim was being treated police tried to talk to him about what happened…but he refused to cooperate.
