A 20-year-old man was shot and killed early Sunday morning when a fight broke out at a party, the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office reports.
Another person was taken to Sunnyside Community Hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound.
Responding to a call about a shooting at an address on Sand Hill Road just outside Grandview city limits, sheriff’s deputies found Carmen Johnson, 20, of Mabton deceased on the property shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday, according to the sheriff’s report.
The sheriff’s investigation determined that a large party, possibly with several hundred people, was taking place at the property on Sand Hill Road when a fight broke out and multiple shots were fired, resulting in Johnson’s death and the second victim’s injury.
The sheriff’s report did not identify the second victim.
Deputies say they are still looking for 21-year-old Miguel Angel Martinez for the murder of Carmen Johnson.
