A Yakima man was shot Monday evening inside his North Third Street home, police said.
A few hours later, while he was in the hospital, his home burst into flames.
Daniel Arellano, 60, was apparently shot from outside his home in the 1100 block of North Third Street around 10 p.m., according to a news release from the Yakima Police Department. Police responding to a report of shots fired discovered him inside the home with a bullet wound in his left thigh.
Arellano was hospitalized and was listed in stable condition Tuesday, according to the YPD news release.
Around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday police again responded to Arellano's home, this time because of several 911 calls reporting a fire.
Police said the blaze caused minor damage and was quickly extinguished.
One person was detained and questioned in connection with the case, but was later released, police said.
Investigators are asking anyone with information about the case to call the Yakima Police Department at 509-575-6200.
