Chief Garry Park drive-by shooting leaves one with non-life threatening injuries

UPDATED: Mon., Nov. 16, 2020

Spokane police are investigating a drive-by shooting in the Chief Garry Park neighborhood on Sunday that left one man with a gunshot wound.

Officers responded to the 2200 block of E. South Riverton at about 6:30 p.m. to find a man bleeding just below his left shoulder, according to a Spokane Police Department news release.

After receiving first aid from officers, the victim was taken to a local hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Officers found a Dodge Charger in a nearby parking lot with three bullet holes in the front windshield and one in the rear passenger window, police said. After a search of the area, bullet casings were also discovered nearby.

The victim told police he was seated in the passenger seat of the Charger when tires squealed then gunshots rang out before tires squealed again. The car from which the gunshots were fired was described as a dark or tan-colored lifted SUV, police said.

When he realized he had been shot, the victim walked to the closest apartment, banged on the door and asked for help.

Anyone with information on the shooting can call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
