YAKIMA COUNTY, Wash.--A 25-year-old Yakima man is recovering after he was shot in the head Monday night.

Yakima County Sheriff's Deputies said Jaime Padilla was standing outside a friend's house along the 1600 Block of Thorp Road near Wapato when a car pulled into the driveway.

Padilla got into an argument with the two people in the car and that's when deputies said one of the suspects opened fire and then drove off quickly.

Neighbors said this type of violence is unusual for the area, and it's a bit concerning.
