HARRAH, Wash.--An 18-year-old Harrah man is suspected of intentionally shooting his uncle inside their home Friday afternoon.

Yakima County Sheriff's Deputies said it was first reported as an accident. However, further investigation revealed there was an intimate relationship between the suspect and the victim, 26-year-old Roberto Ocampo-Ursino.

Sheriff's Deputies said the victim wanted to end the relationship and that's when the young man got mad, firing the gun multiple times. The victim is in critical but stable condition at a local hospital.

The suspect has been booked into the Yakima County Jail for first-degree assault.
