Posted: Updated:

SUNNYSIDE--Two Sunnyside men are recovering after being shot in a New Year's Day drive-by shooting.

Ricardo Cortez and Daniel Lopez are in stable condition, according to a nursing supervisor at Sunnyside Community Hospital.

The shooting happened on the 700 block of South 13th Street at about 2:30 a.m. January 1.

Witnesses say someone fired shots out of a silver SUV, hitting Cortez once in the chest and  hitting Lopez twice in the legs.

Officers are still looking for answers.

"Every time you have an incident where you have a lot of people at one place, it's tough to get people to tell their side of the story," Charlotte Hinderlider, Sunnyside Police Department, said.  "I know out detectives have been working diligently on this case and are interviewing every possible witness."

Anyone with information is asked to call Sunnyside police at 509-837-2120.
