YAKIMA, Wash. —

Two teens who were shot Tuesday on a Yakima sidewalk remain in critical condition Wednesday.

Police Capt. Rod Light says a 17-year-old who was shot in the back is in Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and a 15-year-old who was shot in the head is in a Yakima hospital, but may be moved to another hospital.

Both were apparently shot from behind with a large-caliber handgun.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports ( http://bit.ly/W6PDpL) police believe it was a gang-related shooting. It took place around 11 a.m. at an intersection three blocks from the police station.
