South Hill shooting victim has died

UPDATED: Sat., Nov. 8, 2014, 12:07 p.m.

A man shot multiple times late Friday in the Cannon’s Addition neighborhood on Spokane’s South Hill has died, police say.

Police were called just before midnight by the victim’s girlfriend, said Spokane police Lt. Alan Arnzen.

The victim was shot just east of Elm Street and 10th Avenue. The victim lives nearby.

Witnesses told police that a white man in his 40s shot the victim multiple times in the torso and fled in a dark colored SUV.

Behind crime tape early Saturday morning, the victim’s car was parked in front of the Tenth and Elm Apartments with the trunk open. Arnzen said the man was shot in the street adjacent to the car. He was taken to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center by ambulance, where he was later pronounced dead.

The Spokane County’s Sheriff’s helicopter flew to the scene and shined a search light on the neighborhood for about a half hour after the shooting as it searched for the SUV.

Major Crimes Detectives are investigating the shooting. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
