SPOKANE, Wash. -

The SWAT team was dispatched to a home in the 1100 block of W. Cleveland Monday afternoon and apprehended a man wanted in connection with a North Spokane shooting last week.

SWAT deployed to a residence in the 1100 block of W. Cleveland to search for Joshua Graham, the individual wanted for the shooting of a woman last week.

Graham, 30, was wanted for allegedly shooting the 19-year-old woman in the face in the alley behind his home in the 1500 block of E. Everett Ave. just before 3 P.M. last Monday. He called 9-1-1 after the shooting but disappeared soon afterward.

The victim was taken to Holy Family Hospital and later transferred to Sacred Heart Medical Center for treatment of her injuries.

Initially when officers arrived at the home on W. Cleveland Monday Graham did not want to come outside. After about an hour of negotiations, he came out of the residence around 1:30 p.m. and was taken into custody by police.

A second person found inside the home, identified by police as Nick Wrenn, was also taken into custody on unrelated robbery warrants.
