The suspects yelled out the name of a gang, then one pulled out a handgun and fired several shots. They then ran off before officers arrived.

Pepper spray used to break up fight at state penitentiary

No one was hurt when the fight broke out in a commons area inside one of the four close-custody units in the Walla Walla prison's West Complex, said Shari Hall, prison spokeswoman.
Two prisoners started fighting at 5:35 p.m. Tuesday, and the fight escalated until 14 men became involved, she said.

The West Complex is the prison's second-highest custody level and houses the prison's four gang units.
The prisoners were placed in segregation while the fight is investigated.
Sunnyside man found dead suffered fatal blow to the head
YAKIMA -- A Sunnyside man found dead near Granger died from a blow to his head, authorities said.
Officials initially thought Jose Manuel Correa, 40, died from a gunshot wound, but an autopsy completed Wednesday at the Yakima County Coroner's Office showed that was incorrect, said Yakima County sheriff's Detective Sgt. Robert Udell.
Correa died from blunt force trauma to the head, Udell said. Detectives still are investigating the homicide.
Correa was found dead Monday in the 1000 block of Barnhart Road. His car was found burned Saturday night in the same area, and his family reported him missing Sunday.
Anyone with information on the homicide can call the sheriff's office at 509-574-2500 or Yakima County Crime Stoppers at 509-248-9980.
