Spokane police have shot and killed a man who allegedly fired a gun at them this afternoon at Madison and Indiana streets in Spokane, according to witnesses.
Investigators wrapped up their search of the scene of Friday’s fatal police shooting and reopened the neighborhood about noon Saturday. The shooter, who was killed after firing shots at a north Spokane home and then at police officers who pursued him, will not be publicly identified until after the Spokane County medical examiner conducts an autopsy on Monday, officials said Saturday.
A gunman suspected of shooting at a home was shot and killed by Spokane police officers Friday after abandoning his truck outside a busy restaurant and firing at officers, witnesses said. The man, whose name has not been released, died on the lawn in front of a Spokane Tribe of Indians building at the southeast corner of North Madison Street and West Indiana Avenue about 3:15 p.m. He appeared to be in his late 20s or early 30s.
