A man was shot tonight on the South Hill and police said they were searching for two suspects. The victim entered the 7-Eleven, 1317 S. Grand Blvd., about 8:20 p.m. and announced he had been shot, said Spokane police Lt. Joe Walker. The man was shot a block or two south of the 711 and drove to the store in a pickup, Walker said. Walker said police have developed two suspects, and are searching for them. He did not release their names. The victim was shot in the shoulder and appeared to have lost a significant amount of blood. Initial reports indicated, however, that injuries were not life-threatening, Walker said. Police also said they were not yet certain if the victim knew the shooters. The victim told police that he came contact with the men near the store, and they demanded money and shot him, Spokane police spokeswoman Monique Cotton said in a news release.
