23 Year Old Toppenish Man Killed by Gunshot to the Chest
A 23 year old Yakima tribal member from Toppenish has died after police found him with a gunshot wound to the chest on a sidewalk of South Elm street. That man, now identified as Waylon Owen, died at the scene while police tried to perform CPR after they found him according to news reports. The Yakima coroner says that Owen died from the gunshot he received to the chest and bled to death.
The investigation is being conducted by both the FBI and members of the Yakama Nation Police Department because Owen was a tribal member. This is the second investigation this month those agencies have worked together on.
