The two victims of a shooting that occurred in Yakima on Sunday afternoon remain in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
At about 2:40 pm on Sunday, Yakima police responded to multiple 9-1-1 calls regarding shots fired in the area of 8th Avenue and Pierce Street. When police arrived, they located a vehicle in the 1700 block of 8th Avenue. Inside the vehicle were 31-year-old Danielle Rose and a 15-year-old female. Both were suffering from gunshot wounds. The name of the 15-year-old victim is being withheld because she is a juvenile.
Rose, who was found in the driver’s seat of the vehicle, and the 15-year-old, who was in the passenger seat, were taken to a local hospital before being transported to Harborview.
Based on preliminary investigation, Yakima police detectives believe the shooting occurred in the 600 block of West Pierce. Detectives believe Rose then drove to the location where the vehicle she was driving was found by police.
Yakima police continue to investigate the incident. No arrests have been made at this time.
