4 teens arrested in North Side shooting

An early-morning shooting at a home in northeast Spokane led to the arrest of four teenagers Tuesday.

Spokane police responded to reports of gunfire at a home in the 500 block of East Columbia Avenue about 2:20 a.m.

The door to the home had been forced open and contained a bullet hole from a gunshot apparently fired from outside the home, according to court documents. No one was injured.

The renter, Derek Willis, told police he heard people arguing down the street and was told by armed men were outside who wanted to fight him. Witnesses reported other gunshots as well.

Spokane police officers stopped the suspect vehicle near North Lidgerwood Street and East Rowan Avenue.
Arrested were Alex C. Delgado, 18; Deshone M. Porter, 18; Rien M. Lieseke, 19; and Terrion J. Long, 19.

The men were booked into jail on felony riot charges. At least one was reported to have a handgun during the fight, and Lieseke had a rifle in the back of the car, which is owned by his mother, according to police.
