Colville shooter still at large

A man who allegedly shot his brother to death in Colville is still at large today.

Eric Harris, 48, is being sought by Stevens County sheriff’s deputies in connection with an early Sunday fight that left his brother, 43-year-old Larch Harris dead from a gunshot wound, authorities said.

When deputies arrived at Eric Harris’ home where witnesses reported the shooting occurred, the suspect had already left, according to the Stevens County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies are hoping to obtain a warrant for Eric Harris’ arrest, said Sgt. Loren Erdman with the sheriff’s office. Harris has an extensive criminal history, including several reports of assault, Erdman said.

"It’s definitely a possibility that he’s dangerous," he said. "We haven’t found the weapon he had, so there’s a possibility he’s armed."

Eric Harris is 5-foot-5 and 170 pounds. He has brown hair, hazel eyes and several tattoos. Anyone with information about his location is asked to call 911 or the Stevens County sheriff’s dispatch at (509) 684-5296.
