Man shot in stomach by known intruder

A man was shot in the stomach after someone he knew burst into his north Spokane home Tuesday morning.

Spokane police spokeswoman Monique Cotton said the man’s injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, but he was taken to a hospital.

Police have arrested Jesse T. Adams, 29, on burglary and assault charges, according to a police news release.

Around 10:30 a.m., police received a call of a shooting by an intruder at 2104 E. Heroy Ave. Cotton said the two men were involved in an argument after one kicked in the door of the residence. The resident was shot and the intruder fled in a vehicle, she said. Police apprehended Adams near Mayfair Street and Magnesium Road after a brief chase.

Cotton said the two men know each other.

Entrances to nearby Rogers High School were briefly locked after the incident.
