Reward offered for tips on Spokane shooting

The Spokesman-Review

Police are asking for help solving an attempted murder that occurred last week near Fifth Avenue and Cowley Street in Spokane.

Witnesses reported hearing two gunshots in the area on Aug. 7.

The shooting victim drove to a hospital with a gunshot wound to his back about the same time police responded to the area.

The victim told police he didn’t see a suspect and didn’t know where the shot came from, “but that it sounded very close,” according to a news release by Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Dave Reagan.

Officers found two bullet holes in the victim’s Lexus; one entered the car from the front and appeared to be the shot that injured the victim, Reagan wrote.

The second bullet hole was in front of the driver’s door. Officers found two bullet casings at Fifth and Cowley.

Anyone with information is asked to call (509) 327-5111 or (800) 222-TIPS.
