The 19-year-old suspected of shooting two men Tuesday in a downtown Spokane apartment had his bail set at $500,000.
One of the victims identified Trey S. Galloway as the person who shot him and another man. Investigators tracked him to a home in Priest River, Idaho, where he was arrested. Galloway was booked into the Bonner County Jail early Wednesday and transferred to the Spokane County Jail on Wednesday night, according to jail records.
Galloway is charged with two counts of first-degree assault.
The victim’s identification of Galloway led police to the home of his girlfriend, where Galloway was staying, according to court documents. The couple informed the girlfriend’s mother they were taking a spontaneous trip to Priest River to see a family member when the mother arrived home at about 5:20 p.m., an hour after the reported shooting.
The body style of the vehicle in which Galloway and his girlfriend reportedly left the home was consistent with images of a vehicle seen leaving the shooting scene, court documents say. The mother of the girlfriend gave investigators the address of where they were going.
U.S. Marshals and Spokane police responded to the home and arrested Galloway with assistance from Priest River police and Bonner County sheriff’s deputies, according to court documents and Spokane police.
The girlfriend told police she drove the car to the downtown apartment. Galloway had told her he wanted to go see a friend there, according to court documents.
After going into the apartment building, the girlfriend said she heard two to three gunshots, and that Galloway came jogging out of the building before she could go inside to check on him, according to court documents. Galloway then told her they needed to leave and she drove to her mother’s house.
The girlfriend told police she did not know Galloway shot anyone and said he didn’t mention what happened when he returned to the car, court documents say. She said she did not see him with a gun.
Police recovered $620 in $20 bills in Galloway’s wallet at the Priest River residence but did not find a gun, court documents say. Investigators found at Galloway’s Spokane residence a 9 mm handgun that shoots bullets matching the cartridge diameter of the casings collected at the shooting scene, but have not determined if it was the gun used.
Galloway has no adult criminal record in Spokane, according to court records.
One shooting victim was in serious condition at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center. Another victim, whom police said was in the intensive care unit in court documents, was not listed as a patient at Sacred Heart under the name provided in court documents.
