Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- A Yakima man is recovering after he was shot in the leg.
 
Police say the 30-year-old was walking along A Street near Hall Avenue when a car pulled up and started shooting.

The man was hit once in the leg.
 
Police say they're not sure if it was gang related, but friends of the victim say he wasn't involved in any gangs and they are shocked this happened to him.

"It could happen to anybody. You know, you could be driving and just get shot all of a sudden too. Whenever it happens, it happens," said Ana Bautista who knows the victim.

Police say the victim's injury did not appear to be life threatening. No arrests have been made yet, but detectives are investigating.
