Drive-by shooting in Outlook claims innocent bystander

At approximately 6:30 p.m. yesterday (Sunday) the Yakima County Sheriff's Office was alerted to a drive-by shooting in the 10 block of Second Street in Outlook.

Deputies, assisted by the Sunnyside and Granger police departments, were told a white Chevrolet Blazer pulled up across the street from the targeted residence, where a family gathering was underway.

Children and family members were inside the home when a Hispanic male allegedly fired several shots at the residence.

A man next door to the home targeted by the suspects was outside at another family gathering at the time of the incident. He was struck by a bullet in the top of the head. The suspect vehicle quickly left the scene.

Deputies believe the intended victim was a guest at the original target home. That individual left the family gathering prior to law enforcement arriving at the scene.

The injured man was taken to Sunnyside Community Hospital and his wound does not appear to be life threatening.

The victim was, according to deputies, a by-stander with no gang affiliations.

Anyone with information regarding the incident can call the Yakima County Sheriff's Office at 509-574-2500.
