Granger woman shot in driveby

GRANGER, Wash. — A 21-year-old woman is in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after being shot in the upper body Sunday afternoon.

According to a news release from the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office, Veronica Gonzalez was wounded at about 4 p.m., when shots were fired from a vehicle toward her home in the 500 block of Hudson Road.

At least one bullet entered the house and struck Gonzalez. Other occupants of the house escaped injury. The woman was initially treated in Yakima before being transferred to Harborview.

The suspects fled in a white, four-door sedan. Police believe the shooting is gang related, although Chief of Detectives Stew Graham said Gonzalez is not a known gang member.

Anyone who has information on the shooting is asked to call the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office at 509-574-2500.
