Man shot while working in his yard undergoes surgery

YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) — A 35-year-old Yakima man was working in his yard when a passing car opened fire. Police responded to the call about 5:20 p.m. Sunday and found Jonathan Spear lying on a sidewalk while a neighbor provided first aid. Spear was taken to Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital and then flown to Harborview Medical Center. Spear underwent surgery Monday. Witnesses said they saw a blue Ford Taurus speed away from the area immediately after the shooting. Officers impounded a car they believe was used in the shooting. Police say the shooting appears to be random, and they’re increasing patrols in the neighborhood.
