Woman Shot at Legends Casino on Monday
Yakima County Sheriff's Deputies are looking for a suspect after a woman was shot in the parking lot at Legends Casino on Monday.
DEPUTIES WERE CALLED TO LEGENDS AFTER MIDNIGHT MONDAY
Deputies were called to the casino in Toppenish at about 12:40AM Monday where they found the woman shot in the head and torso. The deputies provided first aid until medics arrived. They took the woman to a local hospital but authorities aren't saying anything about her condition. Plenty of surveillance cameras cover the casino parking lot so it's highly likely the entire shooting was recorded on video and that may have helped Deputies identify a suspect.

Detectives searched for evidence and found information that helped them identify a suspect. The suspect has been identified as as 41-year-old Buddy Byron Mckenzie. Authorities aren't saying how or if he knew the woman.
