Original Press Release:  

Major Crimes Detectives Investigate Late-Night Shooting at Crowded Bar 

One Dead, Two Victims Wounded 


Spokane Valley Major Crimes Detectives are investigating a fight that escalated into a shooting at a Spokane Valley bar. One victim died at the scene, and two additional victims suffered gunshot wounds and were transported to the hospital. Additionally, two people have been detained for questioning, and several witnesses are being interviewed. 


On July 24, 2021, at approximately 12:20 am., Spokane Regional Emergency Communications (SREC) 911 operators began receiving calls reporting a fight and shooting at Ichabod’s East, located at 12116 E. Sprague in Spokane Valley.    

Spokane Valley Deputies responded to the location, contacted several people in the parking lot, and provided medical aid to one victim while others began to secure the scene.  

Spokane Valley Fire and AMR personnel arrived quickly and provided medical assistance.    

A few minutes after Deputies arrived, additional gunshots were reported a short distance away from the bar.  With very little information regarding suspect(s) or what occurred, Deputies request emergency assistance, calling in Spokane Police Officers, Washington State Patrol Troopers, Liberty Lake Police Officers, ad Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputies.   

The area surrounding the tavern was locked down, and the SWAT Team and Air-1 were requested.   

A thorough search of the surrounding area for suspects or additional victims by SWAT Team members, K9 Units, and Air-1 was unsuccessful.    

Two persons of interest in the investigation were detained for questioning, but no arrests have been made at the time of this press release.  Major Crimes Detectives are on scene conducting interviews and collecting evidence with the aid of Spokane County Forensic Unit Technicians.  

One deceased male victim was located inside the business.  A second male gunshot victim with what appeared to be life-threatening injuries was transported to the hospital by witnesses before first responders arrived.  The third gunshot victim, a female, was provided medical attention before being transported to the hospital by ambulance.  Her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.   

Major Crimes Detectives urge witnesses who have not been contacted by law enforcement to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233, reference #10097614.   

This remains an active investigation, and no further information is available at this time.
