Major Crimes Detectives Investigate Shooting on S. Magnolia Street

 

Major Crimes Detectives are investigating a shooting that occurred Sunday evening in the 5800 block of S. Magnolia Street, on the South Hill.  An adult male and female were both reported to have been shot during the encounter, received medical treatment for their wounds, and are expected to recover.  A third, possibly juvenile, male has not been identified.  Detectives continue to investigate the incident and what led up to this shooting.  At this time, no arrests have been made.      

 

Anyone with information regarding this incident or who can help identify the third male is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233, reference #10120797.

 

On September 11, 2022, at approximately 8:25 pm, Spokane County Deputies responded to reports of gunshots near the intersection of S. Magnolia Street and 58th Avenue.   

 

Arriving Deputies located spent ammo casings in the roadway.  They also interviewed several witnesses in the surrounding area.  

 

A short time later, Deputies, with the assistance of Spokane Police Officers, responded to a hospital after being advised two people with gunshot wounds had arrived.  They contacted an adult male who was being treated by hospital staff.  The female left the area but was contacted later and returned to the hospital for treatment.  The male and female are expected to recover from their wounds.    

 

Initial information indicates the male and female that were shot and received medical treatment were involved in some type of deal, possibly drugs, with another male.  The deal went bad, and the male and female were shot while sitting inside their vehicle.  They fled the area in their car and sought medical treatment.  

 

The third person involved has not been identified, and it is unknown if he was injured.  He is described as a black male, mid-teens to early twenties, wearing a dark hoodie and pants, possibly a tracksuit, and dark shoes.  He was observed fleeing the area on foot prior to the arrival of Deputies.

 

Major Crimes Detectives responded, processed the scene for evidence, and conducted interviews with witnesses.  No one has been charged at this time, and this remains an active investigation.  

 

Anyone with information regarding this incident or who can help identify the third male is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233, reference #10120797.
