Outlook home struck by gunfire

An Outlook home was damaged yesterday after a gunshot was heard in the 5000 block of Van Belle Road.

That's according to the Yakima Sheriff's report of activity since Thursday.

Deputies were dispatched to the scene yesterday morning after a gunshot was heard in the area. No injuries were reported, but a resident in the home later found a bullet hole in a wall.

Deputies also were alerted to a burglary in the Wing Hill Road area, near Grandview, where a resident reported that an I-pad was stolen.

Last night deputies were dispatched to the 2600 block of Wilson Highway, near Grandview, where the road had to be temporarily closed after an SUV rammed a utility pole in the area and sheared power lines.

In other Lower Valley activity since yesterday, deputies were alerted to illegal outdoor burning in the 1300 block of Braden Road, near Grandview.

At about 2:30 a.m. this morning, the Sheriff's office also learned that a stolen vehicle was discovered on fire at the corner of Snipes Canal and Swan roads, near Sunnyside. Deputies were told by a witness that three juveniles abandoned the vehicle.

A Sunnyside police officer arrived on the scene and told the county dispatcher that the vehicle was fully engulfed in flames and that ammunition in the vehicle was going off. The vehicle fire was extinguished by 3:11 a.m. today, according to the Sheriff's office.
