Item: Officer involved in shooting named/Bill Morlin and Jody Lawrence-Turner, Spokesman-Review

The Spokane Police officer involved in a shooting in northeast Spokane early Tuesday is Todd W. Brownlee, who has been on the department since 1996, The Spokesman-Review just confirmed. Brownlee narrowly escaped being shot himself before firing his service revolver, sources have told the newspaper. He critically wounded 26-year-old Ryan Patterson outside a home at 1739 E. Wabash in northeast Spokane.

DFO: Another reminder how much we owe to the men and women who form the thin blue line between society and the criminal element.
