UPDATE: Yakima County Sheriff's Deputies Investigating Shooting Along Yakima Valley Highway

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA.- Sheriff's Deputies tell us right now they don't have any leads in the shooting of a 23 year old woman from Wapato.

    

We spoke with them Friday afternoon and they told us the woman was found just after 6 o'clock with a gunshot wound.

    

She told Deputies she had been sitting in her car on the 1900 block of the Yakima Valley Highway  when another car drove by firing shots.

    

The woman was taken to a local hospital that night and right now Deputies say they need the public's help.

"The public's help in all of our cases is very beneficial, if there is anyone that knows what happened we would appreciate a phone call, we are always looking for eye witnesses and any evidence," Detective Mike Russell with YSO told us.

    

At this point in time the Sheriff's Office was not able to release the woman's name or if she has any criminal history.

    

They are investigating all possible angles, but at this time they are not sure if this shooting could be gang related.
