Man killed in police shootout identified

A gunman shot and killed by police last week near a busy north Spokane intersection was identified Monday as Ethan A. Corporon, 29.

 Corporon died of two gunshots wounds to his torso and lower extremities, the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office said after completing an autopsy.

Police say Corporon fired a shotgun at 1402 W. Buckeye Ave., while threatening his father about 3 p.m. Friday, then fled officers before abandoning his truck in Monroe Street and running westbound with the gun.

Corporon has convictions for harassment and violating a no-contact order and was charged with several felonies in Benton County in 2008 and 2009, including third-degree assault and second-degree malicious mischief.
