SUNNYSIDE, Wash. -- Police are looking for five men in connection to last Friday's triple shooting that left one dead and injured two others.

Sunnyside Police say they're searching for Lisandro Rangel, 21, Alfonso Rangel, Jr., 27, Ramon Medina-Gutierrez, 21, Juvenal Moreno-Garcia, 25, and Tanilo Medina, who police say is also known as Guadalupe Fernandez, 26.  All five men are Sunnyside residents.

According to Yakima County Coroner Jack Hawkins, 25-year-old Ramon Magna Mendoza died from multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and torso.  42-year-old Maria Reyes remains at Harborview Medical Center.  Both are Sunnyside residents. 

Sunnyside Police responded to 809 Yakima Valley Highway at 10:45 p.m. Friday after reports of gunshots.  When officers arrived, they found three people had been shot.

Mendoza was dead at the scene and carried nothing on him but a fake social security card. Reyes is in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. A third male victim was treated at a local hospital and released.

Washington State Patrol detectives and the WSP Crime Lab are aiding in the investigation.

"They have a little more experience in processing crime scenes," Det. Sgt. Jeff Cunningham, Sunnyside Police Department, said.  "Plus they the expertise on collecting evidence and processing it."

This is the eighth homicide in Yakima County in 2010.  It is the first murder in Sunnyside this year.
