SPOKANE, Wash. -

Tuesday afternoon's officer-involved shooting led law enforcement agencies to many locations around the city searching for additional suspects.

At one location, near Alcan and Price in North Spokane, four people were questioned by police early in the afternoon. Two were subsequently released following questioning. The other two people were taken downtown for further questioning but have not been arrested.

It's not known at this time if any of the people questioned are connected to the shooting.

At a second location, in the 900 block of East Princeton, the SWAT Team swarmed into a neighborhood after police received information that a person, possibly connected to the shoointgs, may have been hiding in a home or RV.

Both were searched but no one was located.

Neighbors said a couple had been renting the home since last fall and just last month there was a home invasion there. Spokane police say two men with guns entered the home and during the robbery the homeowner was shot in the leg.

The sheriff's office is preparing a search warrant to search the residence, though they did confirm there were no suspects in the home.

Finally, police searched a home in the 5900 block of A Street. Officers searched the home for two suspects they thought could have been in the residence, but did not find anyone there.

It's not known yet who these additional suspects are or what connection they have to Charlie Wallace and the shootings of the two deputies.
