U.S. Marshals arrest shooting suspect

A man who police say shot a Spokane teenager in both legs was arrested in Browne’s Addition early Friday by a federal fugitive task force.

Albert J. Reeves, III, 19, is expected to appear in Superior Court on Monday on one count of first-degree assault.

Spokane police believe Reeves shot a 19-year-old man during an argument near Sharp Avenue and Hamilton Street about 12:30 a.m. on Oct. 5.

Police released surveillance photos that showed the gunman, who was in a wheelchair, enter the Tesoro convenience store, 901 E. Sharp Ave., prior to the shooting. Reeves was identified as a suspect on Tuesday.

U.S. Marshals Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force arrested Reeves about 8:40 a.m. Friday in the 300 block of South Cannon Street. Reeves has previous convictions stemming from a January 2009 beer robbery.

His father, Albert J. Reeves, Jr., is a former high school standout athlete and notorious criminal who won a $2.5 million lottery in 2000, then was arrested the next year in a drive-by shooting investigation.

“He blew threw that money fast,” said Officer Jennifer DeRuwe.

Suspect named in double-leg shooting

A gunman who shot a Spokane teenager in both legs Oct. 5 has been identified as Albert J. Reeves III, 19, police announced today. 

Reeves is accused of shooting a 19-year-old man during an argument near Sharp Avenue and Hamilton Street about 12:30 a.m.

Police released surveillance photos (above) last week that showed the gunman in a wheelchair entering the Tesoro convenience store, 901 E. Sharp Ave., prior to the shooting, which helped identify Reeves as a suspect.

He faces first-degree assault charges and is wanted on a probation violation, police said.

Reeves was arrested in January 2009 for a botched beer robbery in which he told a police officer “he was the member of a gang that owned Spokane,” police said at the time.

Anyone with information on Reeves’ location is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (509) 327-5111 or 1-800-222-TIPS.
