Drive-by shooting injures two near Outlook

Two teens were injured last night during a drive-by shooting reported in the Outlook area.

The Yakima County Sheriff's office said the Monday night incident took place in the 800 block of Second Avenue, in Outlook, when a green car pulled up to a home and fired several shots. Two teenage boys standing outside the house were each struck one time by the gunfire. A 15-year-old male was shot in the arm, while a 13-year-old male was shot in leg, according to a report filed by the Sheriff's office. Neither injury appeared to be life threatening, deputies said.

The green car was described as a Grand Am and was last seen heading northbound from Outlook. Deputies noted there were two males in the car, with the passenger allegedly indicated as the shooter, firing a pistol.

The shooting appears to be gang related, the Sheriff's office said, and remains under investigation by detectives.

Deputies were called to Outlook a second time, just after midnight this morning, when gunfire was reported about a block away from the drive-by shooting. There were no injuries from that shooting incident, the Sheriff's office said.

In other activity yesterday, deputies were called to the 300 block of Asahel Curtis Drive, where an 84-year-old man was found dead on the back porch of a residence. According to Fire District #5 officials at the scene, the man had possibly been dead for a couple of days.

Also yesterday, deputies fielded a call that a maroon, two-door Honda was found completely burned in the area of Bethany and Alexander roads, near Sunnyside.
