Death and destruction on Glass Street.


Good morning, Netizens...

A police-involved shooting took place this morning shortly after 9:00 AM right down the street from Glass and Morton, home of the Virtual Ballroom.

Apparently this all began at about 8:45 this morning when an unknown male subject kicked in the front door of 1328 E Glass and assaulted a woman living in the house with a skateboard. Additionally, he stabbed a black pit bull in the house before fleeing. One of four males living in the house stated none of them knew the assailant, although in my experience of things, the young men of that house know just about everyone else in the neighborhood. After all, they have a portable basketball hoop set up next to the street for late-afternoon hoops and are quite popular as a result.

Police were summoned, and on Courtland, one block over, a policeman confronted the suspect, and immediately was stabbed. Backup was summoned and police shot the young man whose name has not been released to the news media at this time.

Thank you Spokane Police Department! It is unfortunate but true there is one less raving idiot walking around assaulting innocent people because of prompt, effective police action.
