Woman Shot in Drive By Shooting



Yakima police are looking for any suspects involved in a drive by shooting that sends one woman to the hospital.

Police say it happened around 1 am yesterday on the 100 block of Union Street.

Police found a 49 year old woman inside a home bleeding from a gunshot wound to the upper back.

The woman was taken to the hospital to be treated for non-life threatening wounds.

There were several people inside the home when the shooting happened.

One nearby neighbor says she wants to see the violence end in her neighborhood -- and says it can only happen if neighbors work together.

"Join the other neighbors, don't like some who don't know the neighbors," said the neighbor, who asked to remain anonymous, "Get to know your neighbors, help protect your neighbors. That's the only way we're going to get rid of this."

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact the Yakima police.
