Officers shoot suspect in Yakima County drive-by shooting

One man was shot by officers during a chase after a drive-by shooting in Toppenish Monday afternoon.

Around 1:27 p.m., someone reported their house at the 300 block of Old McCoy Rd. was shot at from a vehicle.

The vehicle fled the area. It was spotted by officers and a pursuit ensued.

One of the suspects bailed out of the car with a gun in the 200 block of South Camas Ave. A Yakima County Sheriff’s deputy and a Yakama Nation Tribal officer chased him.

The suspect ran into a local wrecking yard and pointed his gun at the officer. One of the officers then shot the suspect, according to the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office.

The officers administered aid and called for rescue services. The suspect was transported to a local hospital where he is undergoing surgery.

The suspect vehicle continued to flee, but crashed near the intersection of North Camas and Donald-Wapato Road where several other suspects were taking into custody.
