Shooting suspect arrested again for making alleged threats to girlfriend

The suspect in a September 2018 shooting was arrested again last month for allegedly threatening to kill his girlfriend.

Jeremy Mallgren, 33, is suspected of shooting two people in their car outside of 2400 N. Calispel St. on Sept. 6, 2018.

His first appearance in court was a day later and his bail was set at $500,000 after he was charged with two counts of first-degree assault. He was released in November.

Early last month, Mallgren’s girlfriend reported to Spokane Police that he had sent her threatening text messages after she attempted to end the relationship, according to court documents.

In the July 6 texts to his girlfriend, Mallgren admitted to shooting the two people with the intent to kill them, according to court documents, which also allege he referenced poisoning a prosecutor’s dog and pouring something on a judge’s car.

He then told his girlfriend, “I’m going to get you, believe that,” the documents allege. Mallgren also said if the girlfriend thought the shooting was extreme to “just wait.”

The girlfriend told police she was afraid for the safety of herself and her family and that Mallgren possessed firearms, according to court documents.

Mallgren was arrested on charges of harassment threats to kill in relation to the incident.

He posted a $5,000 bond on July 11 and his trial is currently set for Nov. 14.
