Previous Story:

One person was shot to death Monday afternoon in west Spokane.

Police were called to the Canyon Greens Apartments on S. Westcliff Place, near the Indiana Canyon Golf Course on reports of a shooting.

Police said a dispute led up to the shooting, but weren’t able to say yet what happened or the relationship between the victim and suspect.

It’s also unclear if either person lived in the apartment complex.

Neighbors said they’re shocked this would happen in their quiet neighborhood.

“I just never think of that sort of thing happening to that neighborhood because you just don’t think of these people being involved in that sort of event,” said Kurt Scudder, a omeowner.

The shooter has been arrested and major crimes is still investigating.

This is a developing story.
