The man shot in a home in southeast Spokane on Friday was still in the hospital Monday morning.

Police did not release a name or a status of the victim Monday, but did say he remained hospitalized. He was in critical condition Friday.

Just before 5 p.m. Friday, police were called to 4120 E. 38th Ave. on a report of a shooting, said Spokane police Sgt. Teresa Fuller at the scene on Friday.

George Ellis, 39, was arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail on a count of first-degree assault related to domestic violence. He remained in jail Monday on a $2,500 bond.

The two men, who are members of the same family, got into a physical fight, Fuller said. One man shot the other. Ellis was the person who called 911 after the shooting.

The two men live in the home where the shooting occurred and were the only ones home at the time. Property records show the house is owned by George and Martina Ellis.
