Teenager Shot In Arm By Youths Who Wanted Jacket
A Spokane teenager was shot in the arm early Saturday after two youths demanded his coat.
Chris Silva, 19, was walking with a woman near College and Nettleton when the shooting occurred at about 1 a.m., according to a Spokane police report.
The pair was approached by two men, one of whom demanded Silva’s jacket. When he hesitated, the assailant drew a handgun.
Silva handed over the coat and, as several other men approached, turned and ran. He was shot in the upper right arm, police said.
Several people identified a suspect in the shooting, but could not pick his photograph out in a lineup. Police questioned the suspect, but released him for lack of evidence.
Silva was treated at Deaconess Medical Center and released.
