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.

"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.
