YAKIMA, Wash. - Yakima Police have two suspects in custody after a shooting this morning.

Police say the two men stole a car on N. Naches Avenue after a woman left it warming up in front of a house. Her boyfriend tried to chase after the two men and they started shooting at him, he was not injured.

Police spotted the men in the stolen car a few blocks away. That is when both men ditched the car and started running.

Police were able to catch one of the men after a short chase but the other slipped away. Police later found the second suspect near the corner of N. 7th and H St. where they took him into custody.

The Yakima School District says area schools were put into lockdown for about one hour while police searched for the second suspect. That lockdown has since been lifted.
