Suspect in Spokane Valley shooting still at large
SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. — Police still searching for suspects after a shooting Monday afternoon in Spokane Valley near Herald and Valley Way.
Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputies were on the scene of a shooting for several hours Monday after a white male was shot in the head.
Police do not have a shooter in custody, and don’t have a name or description of who they are looking for.
“It occurred in the roadway. The victim was transported to a local hospital,” said Spokane Sheriff’s Deputy Craig Chamberlain.
The first deputy to arrive saw two people run into a home on Herald street, unsure if one of them was the shooter, the home was evacuated.
Police believed the shooter was inside the home, but after several hours it was determined that home was empty.
“The house in question right now is a duplex so we had about 9 people detained right now that we’re speaking with,” said Chamberlain. “We’re just trying to figure out what transpired and who is involved.”
The victim of the shooting is in stable condition. Police say the public is not at risk.
