Milton-Freewater Police Searching for Suspects in Fatal Drive-by Shooting

Yakima, Washington - Yakima County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a Tuesday afternoon shooting. It happened around 3:30 p.m. on the 72000 block of Cowiche Mill Road. 

Deputies say a 20-year-old man from Naches, went there to visit a 64-year-old acquaintance. As the young man pulled in the driveway, his vehicle slid on the snow and hit the acquaintance's truck. The older man "became enraged" and shot the younger one with a rifle in the right arm. 

Crews took the victim to a local hospital where he was expected to be air-lifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for more treatment. Deputies booked the suspect into the Yakima County Jail on an assault charge.
