Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- A 21-year-old man was shot in the head while driving his car. The victim's injuries don't appear to be that serious.

The man was driving in the 400 block of 4th street early last night when someone started firing shots at his car. After one bullet struck him in the head, a passenger took over the wheel and then drove to the hospital.

He was alert and able to talk to investigators.

Police say they don't believe the victim was involved with a gang.

Witnesses told police they saw four men in dark clothing running from the scene.
