Police Investigate Shooting On South 12th Avenue in Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA.- Yakima police are investigating after a shooting on the 1500 Block of South 12th Avenue. Police tell us two young men wearing dark clothes walked up to their victim around 2 p.m. and assaulted him, then fired off a gun.

    

Once we got to the scene, most of the street, including parts of West Mead Avenue were taped off.

    

Two bullets hit the victim, he was taken to the hospital, but isn't suffering from life threatening injuries.

   

Lewis and Clark Middle School is several streets away from where the shooting took place, so the Yakima School District did place the school on lockdown, but the lockdown was lifted around 3.

    

Police did search that area for the suspects, but haven't found them yet.
