April officer-involved shooting case turned over to prosecutors

 

Investigators have completed their investigation into the April officer-involved shooting of Jeremy Arnold, and forwarded the case to the Spokane County Prosecutor’s Office for review.

The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office led the investigation and is recommending no charges against the officers, said Sheriff’s Office spokesman Deputy Craig Chamberlin.

Arnold was a suspect in a fatal stabbing and returned to the crime scene at 2512 N. Standard on April 29 while police and media were still there. He rammed through a police barricade with his truck and video shot by a KXLY cameraman showed Arnold exiting his truck with a gun pointed at officers. Investigators later determined that Arnold was holding a pellet gun when he was shot and killed.
