A woman was shot and killed at a Granger mobile home park early Thursday morning, authorities said.
Yakima County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Casey Schilperoort said there were multiple calls to 911 reporting gunshots around 1 a.m. in the area of 200 block of E Street in Granger. One caller reported a woman, 67, was shot and injured in her home. She died of her injuries.
Investigators from the sheriff’s office and Granger Police Department and Zillah Police Department were on scene Thursday morning gathering evidence, and a drone was being used to get an aerial look at the site, Schilperoort said.
No suspect has yet been identified, and investigators believe the incident was a drive-by shooting, the Sheriff's Office said.
Yakima County Coroner Jim Curtice said an autopsy will be performed Saturday. Her name is being withheld while family members are being notified, Curtice said.
