Shooting accident victim identified

A man whose identity was withheld by the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office after he died from an accidental gunshot on Friday while hunting a porcupine has been identified as Gary L. Kadow, 67. The Medical Examiner’s Office released Kadow’s name on Monday. Kadow went outside his home at 6219 S. Chapman Road to kill a porcupine that had fought with one of the couple’s four dogs. His wife called 911 about 1 p.m. and said her husband “had accidentally shot himself with a shotgun and was in a field nearby,” according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office. His wife told investigators he had medical issues, but investigators don’t know if they contributed to the accident, Reagan said.
