Spokane County Sheriff’s investigators are receiving little cooperation from witnesses to an early morning shooting that sent two people to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries early Friday.

A single-story home near the corner of Broadway Avenue and Dick Road was roped off Friday morning as authorities collected evidence. The shooting occurred sometime around 4 a.m., according to a neighbor who said he was woken from his sleep by arguing, then gunfire.

Dick Road was lined with cars in the hours before the shooting, the neighbor said. The front windows of the home were shattered and the door was ajar early Friday.

The Sheriff’s Office said it is investigating the shooting as possibly gang-related.
