SWAT standoff in north Spokane ends with woman in custody, but wanted man remains on the loose

From staff reports

A SWAT team took a woman into custody Thursday morning after a standoff in north Spokane that lasted more than an hour, but a wanted man remains on the loose.

Law enforcement officials responded early Thursday to a home near North Perry Street and East Queen Avenue, a few blocks from Rogers High School. They said they were after a man who was wanted on weapons charges and believed to be armed.

At about 7:40 a.m., police said they had taken a woman into custody, and that the man was not in the home as expected. Neither individual has been identified. Police said they don’t believe the man is a threat to public safety.
