Posted: Updated:

WAPATO, WA - The Wapato Police Department is trying to find the suspects involved in a drive-by shooting Monday night.

Officers say several men drove up to another man around 10 p.m. along the 200 block of West Elizabeth. The men asked the victim what gang he belonged when they noticed he was wearing a 49ers jacket. The victim said he didn't belong to a gang and just liked the 49ers. That's when the suspects shot at him and hit him in the hip.

Paramedics took him to the hospital where he underwent surgery.

The suspects were Hispanic, in their 20's, and drove a dark gray expedition with black wheels. Anyone with information can call the Wapato Police Department at 509-877-3161.
