Suspect in shooting at Spokane bar arrested
Spokane Police Major Crimes detectives arrested a man Friday they believe is tied to a shooting at a downtown bar that wounded an employee early Thursday.
Andre R. Hallman, 23, was arrested and charged with first-degree assault in connection with the shooting at the Lion’s Lair at 205 W. Riverside Ave.
Three unruly men were asked to leave the bar and returned a short time later.
One fired several shots through the front window, with one bullet striking the employee in the leg, police said.
Hallman was arrested about 6 p.m. driving near the intersection of Lyons and Nevada streets.
He was taken into custody without incident and booked into the Spokane County Jail.
