Deputies investigate Tieton shooting

Yakima County sheriff’s deputies said a Tieton man shot his 35-year-old son in the abdomen early this morning in a possible case of self-defense.

The shooting took place at 4 a.m. at a home in the 1100 block of Beffa Road in the Tieton area, according to information from sheriff’s Chief of Detectives Stew Graham.

Graham said Dennis G. Strain, 59, shot his son, Dennis J. Strain, once in the abdomen after they argued and the younger man charged his father.

The younger man was taken to Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital, where he underwent surgery. Graham said the wound is not considered life-threatening.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is continuing, Graham added.
