Yakima Shooting Leaves 3 Hospitalized

YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) – Three men were hospitalized after a shooting in a south Washington state neighborhood.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reported Monday that Yakima Police Capt. Shawn Boyle says two of the men were shot while a third was struck by a fleeing car Monday.

Boyle says cellphone videos showed a fight erupted between two groups, followed by gunshots on South Ninth Avenue about 145 miles (233 kilometers) southeast of Seattle.

Police suspect the shooting is gang-related and are searching for a red Ford Escort seen speeding away.

Boyle says the three men were in their late teens or early 20s. One sustained life-threatening injuries.
