Sheriff’s office investigating Spokane Valley shooting during argument about dog

From staff reports

Spokane Valley police and Spokane County Sheriff’s Office detectives are investigating a reported shooting in which no one was injured in Spokane Valley Friday night.

The victim of the shooting, who was not injured, told investigators he was in an ongoing dispute with a man who had stayed at his home for a couple weeks, according to a news release.

The man reportedly came to the victim’s home on the 17100 block of East Alki Avenue Friday evening, and a man accompanying the one who had stayed with the victim reportedly fired a handgun during an argument about possession of a dog.

Spokane Valley police arrived at about 7:20 p.m., after the male took the dog and fled in an early 2000s, black Audi sedan, according to a news release.

The suspect and male were not located, according to a news release, but investigators do not believe there’s an increased risk to the public.
