One man is dead after an overnight shooting at a business on North Monroe Street.
Police are still looking for a suspect in the shooting, which was reported shortly after midnight Tuesday at a business called Northwest Accessories, 3400 N. Monroe St. The business is listed as a tattoo, tobacco and piercing shop.
Forensics officers were collecting evidence from inside the shop Tuesday morning. Monroe was closed for a few hours, but is now back open.
Officers stopped a vehicle leaving the area that contained three people, including the victim, a news release from the police department said. Rescue personnel attempted to save the victim’s life, but he did not survive. The two other people were interviewed by investigators and released.
The medical examiner will release the victim’s name.
The suspect is described as a black man with a thin build, standing about 5‘9” with short curly hair. He was last seen wearing a black or gray sweatshirt.
Spokane police are asking anyone with information on the shooting to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
