Suspect at large in trailer park fight

Spokane police are looking for a 24-year-old man after a fight at a trailer park that involved a gun early today.

Julian D. Morrison (right) is wanted for first-degree burglary and is considered armed after an incident at the Wishing Well trailer park, 4911 N. Florida St.

Officers arrived about 1:37 a.m. and were told by a woman that an acquaintance had entered her home, assaulted someone and brandished a gun before leaving in a Dodge Stratus driven by another man, according to a news release.

 Officer Mike McCasland spotted the Stratus at North Freya Street and East Empire Avenue as officers were responding to the scene. The driver refused to stop and jumped out of the car with his passenger at East Buckeye Avenue and North Stone Street, police say.The vehicle stopped after hitting a curb.

Officer Craig Hamilton and his K-9, Leo, located the driver, 31-year-old Josephus McDonald, in the 2600 block of North Lee Street. He was booked into jail on charges of first-degree burglary and attempt to elude police.

McDonald (pictured left in 2007) has been described by police as a founder of one of Spokane's larger homegrown Crips gangs, according to this 2007 article.

Anyone with information on Morrison's location is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
