Man found on Garland Avenue was shot

From staff reports

A man injured while walking down Garland Avenue in north Spokane late Friday appears to have been shot, Spokane police reported.

Medics were called to the sidewalk in front of the North Hill Masonic Temple about 9:50 p.m. and found the 48-year-old man on the sidewalk, said Officer Rob Boothe. Crews discovered that he had a round entry wound on his left shoulder. He was lucid when taken to Sacred Heart Medical Center.

“He didn’t know he’d been shot,” Boothe said. “He felt he just fell down.”

The man was alone, Boothe said. Officers were heading to Sacred Heart after collecting evidence from the scene, to find out for sure if the wound was caused by a bullet.
