Yakima Police Investigate Latest Shooting Reported Saturday
A 17-year-old Yakima boy was treated for a gunshot wound after being injured in a shooting Saturday afternoon. The shooting happened at about 4:20 p.m. in the 1500 block of West Yakima Avenue. When officers arrived they found the boy who told them he was walking with another person in the area when someone in a silver vehicle fired shots and sped away. Another person apparently stopped to help the boy and contact authorities.
