Spokane Valley shooting leaves one in hospital

From staff reports
Spokane County detectives are investigating a shooting in Spokane Valley over the weekend that sent a 22-year-old man to the hospital with a neck wound. At 3:15 a.m. Saturday, deputies were called to a home in the 11600 block of East Empire Avenue on a suspected shooting, according to a news release from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office. A female witness said the victim had been arguing with the suspected shooter, 42, after a night of drinking. She reported hearing one gunshot outside the home and found the victim on his hands and knees in the yard, clutching a wound to his neck. He was driven to the hospital in a private vehicle. The Sheriff’s Office has not released the identity of the victim or the suspect but said the victim was last listed in stable condition. No arrests have yet been made in the incident.
