WAPATO--A 16-year old boy is in serious but stable condition tonight after being hit in the face by a stray bullet during a gang fight.

Yakima County Sheriffs say a gunfight broke out near the intersection of Hoffer and Horschel Roads in Wapato.

Witnesses said one bullet went through a window and hit the victim in the face.  The sheriff's office says he wasn't connected to the gang fight.

Police have questioned several suspects, but no arrests have been made.
