Victim in Bigelow Gulch shooting dies

A Spokane man who was in critical condition after being shot by his neighbor has died.

Deputies with the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office responded Thursday to reports of a neighbor dispute and shooting just after 6 p.m. in the 7600 block of E. Bigelow Gulch.

According to deputies, a fight between neighbors escalated when one man shot another. The gunman then turned the gun on himself, taking his own life. On Monday, the Medical Examiner identified the gunman as 61-year-old David Cholewinski.

The victim has not officially been identified by law enforcement or the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office, but a GoFundMe for his family says he died Friday morning, and identified him as Ben Grosser.
