Spokane police are investigating two assaults in the last four days that may be gang related.
The first occurred April 3 near North Cincinnati Street and East Mission Avenue about 12:30 a.m. An 18-year-old said he was attacked by three people, one who “possibly fired a gun at him,” according to police. His injuries are not life threatening.
The second occurred early Tuesday in north Spokane. Staff at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center called police after a 33-year-old stabbing victim was brought to the emergency room "by associates," police said.
One person reportedly admitted the incident was gang related and occurred about midnight, police said. The victim was stabbed several times but his injuries were not life threatening.
Anyone with information on either assault is asked to call 509-625-GANG (4264). Callers can remain anonymous.
