A Yakima County Sheriff's Deputy is expected to survive after being shot early Tuesday near Tampico. Deputies were called to a domestic incident in the 900 block of South Fork Road at about 1:15 am.
THE DEPUTY WAS SHOT THREE TIMES
Deputies arrived and contacted a female in front of the home while at the same time a 34-year-old man started shooting at Deputies. One 51-year-old Deputy was hit three times in the shooting. He was removed from the area by his partner who also gave him first aid. The injured Deputy was taken to a Multicare Yakima Memorial Hospital in serious but stable condition. He's expected to survive.
