4-11-18 UPDATE:

YAKIMA, WA - One person is hurt and two suspects are on the loose after a shooting Tuesday night near the Yakima Sportsman State Park in Terrace Heights.

The Violent Offenders Task Force is looking for a 20-year-old white man and a 26-year-old Hispanic man, both from Wapato.

The two suspects fired multiple gunshots from inside a red SUV at a person in another car. Police found the victim inside his car at a nearby car wash. The victim told police he knows both suspects from previous gang involvement.

Luckily the victim had no gunshot wounds, but he was treated for other injuries.

Yakima Sheriff's say both suspects could face first degree assault charges for the drive-by shooting.

YSO also says the rare thing about this case is that the victim - who has previous gang involvement - cooperated with them. Usually gangs tend to handle situations like these on their own.
