Yakima Police on the Search for Homicide Suspects
Yakima police are searching for two suspects wanted in the city’s latest homicide. Capt. Rod Light says 43-year-old David Silva, his 19-year-old daughter and 23-year-old son were all shot by a gunman early Tuesday morning at Silva’s home on Cherry Avenue. Light says at least two suspects walked up to the home and opened fire, spraying the front porch and hitting all three. The bullets fatally struck Silva.
His kids are recovering at a Yakima hospital today. His daughter was shot in the face. His son shot in the arm. Light says Silva wasn’t a gang member, but the shooting is gang-related. Light say they have some people of interest they’d like to talk to about the shooting, but so far no arrests have been made.
