THE SUSPECT FIRED SHOTS DURING THE FIGHT BULLETS STRUCK CARS

Police say the suspect fired shots during a fight in the parking lot and although no one was injured 4 cars in the parking lot were hit by bullets.
The 29-year-old suspect was arrested on charges of illegal possession of a firearm and reckless endangerment for firing the gun in the parking lot.

LOTS OF PEOPLE AND CARS WERE IN THE PARKING LOT AT THE TIME OF THE SHOOTING

Officers say because it was at a time when bars in the area were closing many people were in the parking lot along with a lot of cars at the time of the shooting. Police aren't saying if the fight is connected to a gang related shooting reported Monday morning in downtown Yakima.
