Man Shot in Wapato Recovering

KNDO

A 25-year-old Yakima man is recovering after he was shot in the head Monday night according to KNDO.

Yakima County Sheriff’s Deputies said Jaime Padilla was standing outside a friend’s house along the 1600 Block of Thorp Road near Wapato when a car pulled into the driveway.

Padilla got into an argument with the two people in the car and that’s when deputies said one of the suspects opened fire and then drove off quickly.

Neighbors said this type of violence is unusual for the area, and it’s a bit concerning.

“I was just worried about my dad because he was home, and I wanted to make sure he was okay because I could see the police lights from the freeway,” said a neighbor.

The victim is being treated at a local hospital.

Deputies said they don’t have a description of the car or the suspects at this time. Anyone with information is asked to contact Yakima County Crime Stoppers.
