Union Gap drive by, minor injuries

NION GAP, Wash. -- Police are continuing their investigation into a Saturday drive-by-shooting in which an 18-year-old man was struck but not seriously injured.

About 2:15 a.m. Saturday, police said they responded to a call about shots fired in the 2100 block of South Fourth Avenue, and learned that a man suffering from a gunshot wound had been taken to Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital.

The man was struck in the leg by a small caliber round, but it didn't penetrate his skin, police said.

Police said the shooters fled the scene before they arrived, and believe the shooting was the work of rival gang members. No other injuries were reported.

Detectives are working leads and ask anyone with information about the shooting to call the Union Gap Police Department at 248-0430, police said.
