Man Injured in Drive-by Shooting in Wapato

Wapato Police are looking for a dark gray Ford Expedition with black wheels believed to be involved in a drive-by shooting last night.

Officers responded to the 200 block of W. Elizabeth around 10 p.m. and found a male victim had been shot in the hip.

The victim says the suspects inside the vehicle motioned him over, noticed he was wearing a 49ers jacket and asked him what gang he belonged to.  The victim told the suspects he did not belong to a gang, but just liked the 49ers.  That's when he was shot in the hip.

The victim states he does not know the suspects and was transported to Memorial Hospital where he underwent surgery for his injuries.

The suspects are believed to be Hispanic and in their 20s.  Anyone with information should contact the Wapato Police Department at 509-877-3161.
