Police investigate shooting in northeast Spokane

A neighborhood dispute turned violent Thursday night, leaving one man in critical condition from a gunshot wound.

The victim, who was not identified, was not expected to live, said Officer Jennifer DeRuwe, spokeswoman for the Spokane Police Department. He was undergoing surgery for multiple gunshot wounds Thursday at a local hospital.

The shooting occurred in the 1600 block of East Mallon about 9 p.m.

As of 10:30 p.m., police had detained two men in the case, although their involvement was unclear, DeRuwe said. Both men were located in the neighborhood, she said.

At one point officers thought they had tracked the shooting suspect to a house near Mission Avenue and Napa Street, but a search of the home revealed the man was not there.

No additional details were available. The investigation is ongoing.
