Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WASH.--Yakima Police continue to search for a 25-year old Selah man, who's suspected of shooting two men inside his ex-girlfriend's house Thursday night.

Police said Jesse Johnson broke into the home along the 800 block of N. 6th Avenue, and started fighting with 41-year-old Leon Raaen and 31-year-old Theodore Cooley.

Police said the fight moved to the bathroom where Raaen and Cooley were both shot. Police believe the suspect is still in the area.

"He'll be charged with multiple felonies," said Captain Rod Light of the Yakima Police Department. "Very likely first degree burglary, a couple counts of first degree assault, very serious felony charges."

Police said Johnson is a little over 5 feet tall and roughly 160 pounds. Police are offering a cash reward for information leading to his whereabouts.
