Man left with life-threatening injuries after downtown Spokane stabbing

UPDATED: Tue., June 14, 2022

A man sustained life-threatening injuries after a stabbing Saturday night in downtown Spokane.

Spokane Police Department Cpl. Nick Briggs, a spokesman for the department, said in a text message officers responded to the stabbing around 8:30 p.m. near Pacific Avenue and State Street.

He said hospital staff described the victim’s condition as life-threatening at the time, but Briggs did not have an update on his condition Tuesday.

Briggs said there was some sort of brief interaction between the suspect – a man – and the victim before the stabbing. Briggs said a knife was used in the stabbing but he could not provide specifics on where the man was stabbed.

Police have not identified a suspect.
