YAKIMA – A 47-year-old Yakima woman who died of a gunshot wound Friday night has been identified as Anna M. Hargett, Yakima County Coroner Jack Hawkins told The Yakima Herald on Sunday.

Authorities did not release the name until Sunday, saying they first needed to notify next of kin.

Hargett was shot “in her upper body” on the 1100 block of Roosevelt Avenue around 9:40 p.m. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday, Hawkins said.

The same bullet that hit Hargett also injured a 42-year-old woman, although Hawkins did not know her name or current condition.
