A man is accused of stabbing his brother in the back during a fight at a Wapato homeless shelter Monday.
Yakima County Sheriff’s deputies were called to Noah’s Ark around 6:30 p.m. Monday on a report that a man had been stabbed, said sheriff’s spokesman Casey Schilperoort. When officers arrived, they found a man with multiple stab wounds. His brother is alleged to have stabbed him in a fight, Schilperoort said.
Both brothers are Yakama Nation citizens, and the case was turned over to the tribal police department for further investigation, Schilperoort said. A call to the tribal police has not been returned yet.
The injured man was taken to Astria Regional Medical Center for treatment, Schilperoort said, and his condition was not immediately available. His brother was booked into the tribal jail, Schilperoort said.
