A Party in Spokane Valley Erupts in Gunfire

Posted 7/17/2012 8:54 AM by KWESTBERG

Early Sunday morning, July 15th at approximately 0450 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff’s deputies responded to a shooting call near the 15000 block of East Mission in Spokane Valley.

When deputies arrived, assisted by the Washington State Patrol and Liberty Lake Police, they observed several people at the location. They were told a fight broke out during a party at the location and one of the males involved started firing a pistol and left in a vehicle prior to the deputy’s arrival. Within minutes, deputies who were responding to the scene, observed a vehicle matching the description of the suspect’s vehicle in the area of Pines and Cherry Road. They stopped the vehicle at Pines Road and Maribeau Parkway and detained the two male occupants.

Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes detectives were called to the scene to assist with the investigation. During the investigation, information was gained which identified 24-year-old, Edgar Ambriz Viveros as the suspect who fired the pistol. Ambriz Viveros was arrested and transported to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office and booked for First Degree Assault with a Firearm, a felony.

One person sustained a cut or cuts to his hand from broken glass during the fight but no one was injured by the gunfire. The firearm, a semi automatic, .45 caliber Sig Sauer was recovered at the scene of the party.
