TOPPENISH, WA - At approximately 1:21 pm, Toppenish Police Department officers responded to the intersection of Rentschler Lane and Guyette Lane in reference to a possible drive by shooting. 

Upon arrival, officers located two victims, one a 32-year-old Native American male and the other a 30-year-old Native American male. Both had been shot multiple times, by the occupants of a dark red or maroon passenger car. The suspect vehicle also has dark tinted windows, a black bar on the hood and a fin on the trunk. 

Both victims were conscious and alert and were treated by medics before being transported to local hospitals. Both of the victims' wounds appear to be non-life threatening.
