Shooting in Yakima Early Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WA - Around 2:30am Tuesday, Yakima police responded to several calls from residents of an apartment complex on the 1400 block of Yakima Avenue reporting hearing gunshots.  After investigating the area, they found nothing, but kept two patrol cars in the area to keep an eye on things.  They saw two men run from the complex and get in a blue Chevy Impala. 

When police pulled the car over on 10th and Yakima, the passenger fled on foot carrying a gun.  He was eventually caught, and police think he is the one who fired the shots. 

The driver of the car has been booked on DUI.  The man who fled police is already a convicted felon, and the gun he was holding, is a stolen gun.
