YAKIMA, Wash.--An Outlook man faces first-degree murder charges after the death of a Sunnyside man.
Court papers show 29-year-old Robert Licea was in a car with several men when he was shot by a fellow gang member during a dispute over meth and hanging out with rival gang members.
31-year-old Anthony Snyder faces charges of first-degree murder and unlawful possession of a firearm.
His bail is set at $750,000.
SUNNYSIDE, Wash. - A man from Outlook faces murder charges in the death of a man from Sunnyside.
The Yakima County Sheriff's Office says two people brought the victim, 29-year-old Roberto Licea to the hospital Sunday morning with a gunshot wound to his stomach. Deputies say that's where he later died.
The two people told investigators a gang member in a white car shot Licea in the area of Sunnyside and Outlook, but deputies say there were other inconsistencies with that version of the story. Investigators say they later determined the gunshot came from the same car Licea was riding in, from one of the people who drove him to the hospital.
Sheriff deputies booked 31-year-old Anthony Scott Snyder into the Yakima County Jail Sunday afternoon on first degree murder charges.
The coroner plans to perform an autopsy on Licea on Tuesday.
