WAPATO, Wash.-- A Wapato man is in critical condition after police say he was shot in the head Wednesday.

Wapato PD says that area is a serious trouble spot for them.

"This particular market is in the area of a known gang house. And so they travel to and from the market for their daily needs, and then that's when we have the issues that come up," said Wapato Police Chief Tracy Rosenow.

Police have no suspects yet, but say they believe the victim and his friend know the shooter or shooters.
