Just one person was shot, a 17 year old male teen.School let out early Wednesday, so there were a lot of witnesses, including some children. Fortunately, no one else was hit.Two cars pulled up to the intersection of Sixth Ave. and Cherry Ave. Police say someone in a black car fired at the people who were in a silver car.The driver was hit once in the side. Police said there was one other passenger in the car. He ran once it crashed into a telephone pole at Sixth and Roosevelt. Police caught up with him and took him in for questioning.People who live in this neighborhood couldn't believe this happened in the middle of the day, but all those witnesses do give police some leads."Usually we can hear the gunshots at night," Joey Quinnett said. "But nothing's been done like this in broad daylight.""[There were] three to four Hispanic males, apparent gang members dressed in red in a smaller black car with a sun roof and it's been described as a Honda-type vehicle," Capt. Greg Copeland, Yakima Police Department, said. Police think the suspects are in their 20'sWitnesses disagreed on whether the car was a Honda Stealth or a Lexus. The victim's wound was not very severe. He's already been treated and released from Regional Hospital.
