Daniel Arellano, a 60-year-old Yakima resident, was found by officers who responded to a report of shots fired in the 1100 block of North 3rd Street shortly after 10:00 pm Monday. Arellano, who had a single gunshot wound to his left thigh, was initially treated by officers on scene. Arellano was transported to a local hospital to be treated for his wound. At last report, he was in stable condition and expected to recover.
