South Perry District shooting suspect arrested

Spokane police have arrested a man they believe is responsible for firing several shots at a home in the 1300 block of East Nina Avenue just before 1 a.m. today.

Roderick D. White, 41, was booked into the Spokane County Jail on charges of assault, unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

There was a party at the home and earlier there had been an argument between two men, according to police spokeswoman Monique Cotton. Police believe White fired several shots at the home and fled on foot with a group of people, Cotton said.

Witnesses identified White as the possible shooter and said he lived nearby. White was found in the backyard of a nearby residence, Cotton said.

Police obtained a search warrant for White’s home and car. Investigators found three handguns, a rifle and narcotics inside White’s car, Cotton said. A large amount of narcotics and scales were reportedly found inside the home.
