Weekend stabbing being investigated as self-defense

A man suspected of stabbing another man on Saturday night near the intersection of Nelson and Wabash, was never arrested because the incident is being investigated as self-defense, says Spokane Police spokeswoman officer Jennifer DeRuwe.

Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office is calling the manner of the victim’s death a homicide.

The victim, who was later identified as 25-year-old Robert H. Fletcher, died from multiple stab wounds and incised wounds, says medical examiner officials. Fletcher was pronounced dead after he was transported to a local hospital.

Witnesses told police the name of the possible suspect and he was located nearby.

Police have yet to identify him since they’re still investigating the homicide.
