Major Crimes Detectives Investigate Shooting on N. Cherry
Spokane Valley Major Crimes Detectives are investigating a shooting at an apartment complex on N. Cherry Street in Spokane Valley. An adult male has been detained, and the adult male victim was transported to the hospital for a potentially life-threatening gunshot wound to his leg.
This remains an active investigation, and Detectives ask anyone who witnessed or has information about this incident to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233, reference #10172358.
On December 27, 2022, at approximately 4:35 pm., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to the report of a shooting at an apartment complex in the 2800 block of N. Cherry Street in Spokane Valley.
The caller reported a male had just shot at a person inside a vehicle in the complex's parking lot. The victim in the car fled, and the suspect remained at the location.
Deputies arrived, quickly locating the male believed to be the shooter, and detained him without incident.
Spokane Valley and Spokane County Deputies began searching for the adult male victim and/or the vehicle driven from the scene.
At approximately 4:40 pm, a male believed to be the victim called 911, reporting he had been shot. Deputies contacted the victim, who was not cooperative with specific information, in the parking lot of Plantes Ferry Park and immediately provided medical aid. The victim was transported to the hospital for additional treatment for a potentially life-threatening injury, a gunshot wound to his upper leg.
Initial information indicates the shooting began as an argument between the two men that escalated.
Major Crimes Detectives and Spokane County Forensic personnel have been summoned and are responding to the location. Investigators will request a search warrant for an apartment connected to the investigation, and once obtained, they will conduct a search for evidence.
Although the male shooter is detained at this time, he may face criminal charges depending on the facts learned during the investigation.
At this time, Detectives do not believe any suspects are outstanding or that there is an ongoing threat to the public in connection to this incident.
