SPOKANE - Spokane Police are looking for a pair of suspects who chased down and shot a man near the Gonzaga University campus over an argument about a wheelchair.
The shooting happened at Hamilton and Sharp around 12:45 a.m. Tuesday.
Officers say the shooting victim and a friend were at a Tesoro gas station when they got into an argument with two other men.
?Apparently the suspects were posing as handicapped, they had a wheelchair, and they got into an argument about that and then it all ended up here,? Spokane Police Sergeant Kevin King said, referring to the Superior and Sharp area.
During the argument one of the suspects pulled out a handgun and fired a shot into the air. The victim and his friend ran away, but the suspect chased the two and fired another shot. The bullet hit the victim in both legs.
The gunman is described as a Hispanic man between the ages of 18 and 20, with a thin mustache. His partner is a white man, also between 18 and 20-years-old. He was wearing a white t-shirt and had shoulder length hair.
