Shooting at Elements

On 102208 at approximately 0100 hours a shooting ocurred at the "Elements" nightclub located at 21 E Lincoln Rd in Spokane.   A fight broke out among the patrons and during this incident, at least one suspect displayed a firearm and shot off a round near the crowd. Anyone with any information, namely witnesses or potential vicitms , should call 625- GANG with their information.  Confidentiality is strictly adhered to in these investigations.


In the old days of police reporting, this was what was sometimes referred to as a “civil riot” although the term donnybrook was often used instead. The only long-term cure to this ongoing problem with the Elements Nightclub is to revoke their business license and liquor license if applicable. That is not a place where one would like to walk their dog, feed the birds (even at 1:00 AM) or drop by for a cup of coffee in my opinion. Of course, nobody died nor was a police officer injured in this incident and I fear that is required before their business license will be at risk.
