Spokane Valley Shooting Investigation

Posted 8/29/2013 6:11 AM by CKCHAMBERLIN

Today, August 29th, 2013, at 12:45 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies responded to 302 S. Sullivan Road on a shooting call. Deputies arrived on scene and found a 22-year-old male that had a gunshot wound to his head. He was transported to a local hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

Once deputies secured the scene, Major Crimes detectives responded to investigate the shooting. Nine witnesses to the shooting remained on scene and were interviewed by detectives. At least a dozen other witnesses fled the scene prior to deputies arriving.

Preliminary evidence shows the shooting may have been accidental and self inflicted. Alcohol played a major factor in this incident.

Currently, detectives are still on scene completing their investigation. They will remain on scene for the majority of the morning. Any witnesses that were not interviewed are asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233 to set up an interview with detectives.
