Two Lower Valley men are charged with first-degree assault in connection with a Sunday-night shooting that left one man seriously injured.

Logan W. Weeks-Whiz and Isiah J. Aleck, both 18, also are charged in Yakima County Superior Court with drive-by shooting, said Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Brian Aaron.

The pair are accused of shooting a 23-year-old man during a drive-by shooting on Guyette Lane late Sunday night, according to court records. Toppenish police found the man at the McDonald’s at 739 W. First Ave. with a gunshot wound to his chest, the documents said.

The victim provided information that led detectives to Weeks-Whiz, who was arrested Monday near the van he was living in behind an abandoned home in the 700 block of Madison Avenue, court records said.

After that arrest, police obtained evidence that led them to Aleck, who was arrested at his Branch Road home outside Toppenish on Tuesday, where court records said police also found a .40-caliber handgun.

Both men are being held in the Yakima County jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
