6 wounded outside Yakima hookah lounge

YAKIMA — Police say they’re not getting a lot of cooperation from the victims of a shooting outside a hookah lounge — a private smoking club — in Yakima.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reported the four men and two women were shot early Sunday in the parking lot of Aladdin’s Hookah Lounge. A 31-year-old man was critically wounded, and their other wounds were less serious.

Capt. Rod Light says the shots were fired from the back seat of a car that circled the blocks several times. Light says investigators aren’t getting a lot of cooperation from the victims in identifying suspects.

The owner of the lounge, Sonny Salha, said he suspects the problem started elsewhere and followed the victims to the lounge, which is open after bars close.
