"It's your neighborhood, it's your city and you know if you let these things continually happen and turn the other way the bad guys are gonna think it's safe because nobody's gonna tell on them," said Sgt. Tony Bennett, Yakima Police Department.

Bennett said neighborhood watches have played a key role in solving other shootings this year. The shooting happened around 7:20 Wednesday night. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call police, YPD's number is 575-6200.
