A man who police say shot and killed a man at a party Friday in Spokane Valley faces a $1 million bond on charges of murder and assault.

Zachary R. McGlocklin, 30, appeared in Spokane County District Court on Monday afternoon after being arrested early Friday on suspicion of second-degree murder and second-degree assault.

Spokane County Sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of shots fired about 4:30 a.m. Friday in the 1900 block of Evergreen Road during a party involving “alcohol and illicit drugs,” according to a news release from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office. Witnesses told investigators McGlocklin pulled out a handgun at the party and started shooting for “no apparent reason.”

Prosecutors identified the victim as Destin Cooper, a man in his late 20s.

Correction: This article has been updated to correct the spelling of the victim’s name.
