Yakima County Sheriff’s detectives arrested the 17-year-old boy yesterday following an investigation of a shooting at Rimrock Lake in the early morning hours of June 25, Detective Sergeant Mike Russell said.
The suspect fired a rifle into a campsite, wounding a 31-year-old man, Russell said. The weapon was left at the scene and later determined to be stolen during a burglary in Yakima.
