Drive-by Shooting in Buena
Yakima County Sheriff's deputies were sent Sunday morning to the 100 block of Burr Street in Buena to investigate a drive by shooting. Before they arrived, deputies were advised that a man, with unknown injuries, had already been taken to a local hospital in a private vehicle.
When deputies arrived just before 1 a.m. Sunday, they learned a dark colored Honda, occupied by three or four Hispanic men, drove up to the home.
A suspect then exited the vehicle and began to open fire. The victim did not know he had been wounded and threw an empty beer bottle at the suspect vehicle, breaking a window. The suspects then left the area in an unknown direction.
It was discovered that the victim’s injury was very slight. At this point the identity of the suspects is not known. The victim and witnesses all claimed no knowledge of who the suspects might be.
