Sunnyside teen struck by gunfire

A report of gunshots in the area of Rouse and Cemetery roads was made to the Yakima County Sheriff's Office at approximately 3:45 p.m. this past Saturday afternoon. Several callers reported hearing multiple gunshots and a young man, described in his teens, was reportedly struck by a bullet.

The incident, described as a drive-by, occurred as the teen was walking with two of his friends along Cemetery Road. One caller described the suspect as a male teenager wearing a brown sweat jacket and a blue beanie. The suspect vehicle was last witnessed heading northbound from the scene of the gunshots. Shell casings were recovered and the sheriff's office is still investigating the incident.

Also since last Friday, deputies have received three theft reports from Lower Valley residents, two auto theft reports, a sex abuse report, an accident call, a suspicious incident call, two calls related to two illegal street racing incidents, four domestic violence calls and a report of a DUI. Deputies have recovered two stolen vehicles and attempted to arrest an individual for eluding authorities.
