A man was taken to the hospital Wednesday evening with life-threatening injuries after Spokane police say he was shot near North Central High School.
Officer John O’Brien, spokesman for the Spokane Police Department, said the victim was transported to a local hospital sometime after 6:30 p.m., when witnesses reported hearing shots ring out on the 700 block of West Maxwell Avenue.
No arrests had been made as of Thursday evening.
“It does not appear this is any stranger-to-stranger incident,” he said. “It appears these people were known to each other.”
O’Brien said detectives have talked to multiple witnesses and are “actively trying to locate the person responsible.”
