Original story:

Spokane Police were searching for a man following a reported shooting in the Nevada/Lidgerwood neighborhood Saturday afternoon.

One man was taken to the hospital with injuries not believed to be life-threatening, said Officer Theresa Fuller, a spokeswoman for Spokane Police. The shooting was reported at 2:30 p.m., she said.

Officers searched the area of Addison Street and Francis Avenue with a police dog for the man, Fuller said. Residents are advised to stay in their homes and others should avoid the area during the search.

The shooting victim and the man sought by police knew each other, Fuller said.
