Four Mattawa teens were shot early Sunday morning outside of a Yakima County party, according to the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office.
The male teens were taken to a local hospital where they were treated for non-life threatening injuries, the sheriff’s office said. The teens, whose names were not released, are 14, 16, 17 and 19.
The shooting took place around 3 a.m. on the 300 block of S. Outlook Rd., where the teens had been at a party, the sheriff’s office said. As they walked to their car, a Hispanic male exchanged gang slurs with the group and reportedly pulled out a pistol and fired several rounds then fled.
Police are searching for the Hispanic male. He was wearing a blue shirt, blue jeans and white shoes.
