The four victims were in a parked car at the NAPA Auto Parts store in the 1700 block of North Monroe. The driver sped off when the shooting began, the Spokane Police Department said. He drove to a Spokane hospital.

One man was in serious condition and another in satisfactory condition Friday, police said. Two others were released after treatment, according to police.
