SUNNYSIDE, Wash.- A 14 year old boy is recovering after being shot in Sunnyside Thursday night.
A search is now on for a suspect.
Police say two boys were walking through the Eastway Shopping Center parking lot just after 6:00 Thursday night when a man hopped out of a tan pickup and shot the 14 year old in the chest.
Witnesses say the gunfire sent bystanders into a panic. Some broke windows trying to find cover.
"It's pretty quiet down here normally, like I said I come here 15-20 times a day and it's quiet, nice neighborhood, nice store, it got exciting last night though," said Gary Lakey, who shops there every day.
Police say the victim is a gang member, but won't call the shooting gang related.
