Coroner: Wapato Man Was Shot in the Chest by Tribal Officer

The Yakima County Coroner says a bullet wound the chest caused the death of 42 year old Ira Arquette last Friday.

Arquette was shot by a tribal police officer after leading police on a chase into Toppenish.

Deputies say Arquette opened fire on police before gunshots were returned.

The Yakima County Coroner says toxicology tests have been submitted to the state testing lab, but will take at least a month to process.
