OUTLOOK, Wash. - The Yakima County Sheriff's Office is investigating a Thursday night homicide after a 17-year-old girl was shot at her front door and later died at a Seattle hospital.

Four people wearing blue bandanas over their faces pulled up to a mobile home on 10 1st. Ave. around 9:30 p.m. in a car, according to YSO. A woman inside saw the car arrive and tried to scare them off by breaking a bedroom window. The four suspects started knocking at the front and the 17-year-old opened the door. She was shot in the side by a small caliber gun.

The victim was taken to Sunnyside Community Hospital and later transported to Harborview Medical Center, where she later died from her injuries.

YSO says the shooting is gang-related and asks anyone with information to call (509)574-2500 or Crime Stoppers at (509)248-9980.
