Sheriff's Office: Man injured in gang-related shooting in Terrace Heights

YAKIMA, Wash. - Deputies say two suspects have been arrested after a man was hurt when his vehicle was shot at in Terrace Heights.

The person who allegedly pulled the trigger was identified as 20-year-old Lindsey Dominique Albright, of Wapato, according to a report from the Yakima County Sheriff's Office.

The driver was identified as 26-year-old Louis Francisco Aguilar, also from Wapato.

Wapato police informed Action News Wednesday afternoon that an arrest was made in connection to the shooting at Wolf's Den in Wapato.

Deputies with the Yakima County Sheriff's Office (YCSO) were called to the area of S. Keys Road and University Parkway around 6:15 p.m., Tuesday for a report of someone shooting a gun from an SUV at another vehicle.

When deputies arrived, they found the victim at a nearby carwash. The man said he knew the shooter and the driver of the SUV from a gang he was involved with, according to reports.

The suspect vehicle is described as a red SUV.

YCSO reports said the SUV first pulled up to the victim's vehicle while traveling on Highway 97 where the suspects flashed gang signs at the victim.

The SUV later arrived at the victim's vehicle in Terrace Heights where the shots were fired.

Deputies said multiple bullet holes were found on the driver's side of the victim's vehicle. The victim was not hit by bullets.

Medics treated the victim for other injuries as a result of the shooting. The man later went to the hospital on his own.

Reports said one home was hit in the shooting while people were inside. No one inside the home was injured.

Multiple nearby agencies assisted YCSO in response to this shooting, including the Violent Offenders Task Force.

Albright and Aguilar are in Yakima County Jail while detectives continue to investigate this shooting.
