Yakima Police Investigating Sunday Night Homicide
Yakima Police are looking for suspects involved in a Sunday night shooting that claimed the life of a 23-year-old Cowiche man.
Police reported that Jared Scroggins suffered a fatal bullet wound to the abdomen at around 10:38 p.m. on the 800 block of East D Street. When officers arrived, they found Scroggins — who was still alive — with a 17-year-old male, who wasn’t hurt.
Scroggins, who had been shot once, died after being taken to a local hospital.
Witnesses told police the two were walking west on D Street when the shots were fired by an unknown assailant. No other information was immediately available.
Police say the victims don’t appear to have gang ties.
