Gunman wanted in downtown shooting

Police are looking for a suspect in a shooting Sunday night in downtown Spokane.

Matthew A. Raney, whose age was not released by police, is accused of firing shots at 907 W. 3rd Ave.

Police locked down the four-story Trade Winds Motel about 9:10 p.m. Officers couldn't find a victim and had conflicting reports of where the suspect was. They found his room empty but blood on a bed, then learned a victim had located police in an office in the building and said there was a second victim, whom police found in a nearby room.

The victims said the suspect was hiding in their apartment and “and came at them with a gun,” according to a news release.

A fight over the gun ensued, and a shot was fired. The victim suffered a cut to his head but the second female victim was uninjured.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
