YAKIMA, WA - Police are still searching for a suspect involved in a shooting early this morning in Yakima. Police got calls of shots fired at the 1000 block of Pacific Avenue at around 2:30 this morning. Minutes later law enforcement received another call of a gunshot victim near the intersection of 13th and Pacific Avenue, when officers arrived at the scene they discovered an adult male with a gunshot wound. 

"It appears based on the information we have right now that there was a vehicle that drove by and fired shots," said Mike Bastinelli, spokesman for the YPD. "The man said he was just walking and the car pulled up and fired several shots from the vehicle."

The suspect fled the scene and the victim 26-year-old Pablo Limas-Mendez was taken to a local hospital and was then transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The suspect has not been identified yet and police are actively investigating this shooting.
