Yakima Police say two juvenile males were standing at the intersection of South Fair Avenue and East Mead Avenue when a vehicle drove up to the two and the driver called out to them thinking he may have known the two kids.

POLICE SAY ONE JUVENILE PULLED A GUN AND FIRED SHOTS

At that time one of the juveniles pulled out a gun and began firing at the victim. The victim fled in the vehicle and was not injured. Officers responded to the area and arrested the two suspects who are now being held in the Yakima County juvenile jail on assault charges.
