UPDATE: Major Crimes Detectives Ask for Public’s Help
Spokane Valley Major Crimes Detectives are attempting to locate and identify the owner/driver of this pictured white Ford Expedition to see if they have any information regarding a shooting that occurred on the morning of July 8, 2022.
The white Ford Expedition has a white ring on the outside of the front passenger’s side tire, possibly caused by rubbing against a curb often while parking, and appears to have a similar, although not as pronounced, white marking on the passenger’s side rear tire. There also seems to be a sticker on the back window, lower right-hand side, and damage to the passenger’s side door.
Again, Investigators would like to identify and interview the driver/owner of this vehicle to find out if they witnessed or have any information regarding this investigation.
Anyone who can help Detectives identify the owner/driver of the Expedition or may have information regarding this shooting investigation is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233, reference #10086742.
