On Tuesday, April 29th, 2014, Spokane Police officers and detectives responded to the location of a homicide at 2512 N. Standard. Spokane Police North-side Captain Keith Cummings, had just finished delivering an interview regarding the homicide investigation when a vehicle drove at a high rate of speed through barricades set up to secure and close down the immediate area where the homicide investigation was being conducted. The vehicle drove recklessly through the crime scene coming rapidly toward officers and a civilian member of the department standing in the road.

Officer's immediately recognized the driver, identified as 37-year-old Jeremy Arnold, as he was a suspect in the homicide investigation. Arnold stopped the vehicle he was driving and exited the vehicle holding what appeared to be a handgun in his left hand. Multiple commands were given to Arnold to drop the weapon from officers who were in very close proximity. Arnold lifted his left hand, pointing the handgun towards officers. The officers fired their service weapons and Arnold was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Spokane Investigative Regional Response Team (S.I.R.R.) is investigating this incident and the Spokane County Sheriff's Office is the managing agency. The investigation is ongoing and the Spokane Police Department will identify the officer's involved in the shooting in the coming days.
