Officer Jacquie Valencia with the Spokane Police Department said the incident was reported around 3 p.m. on the 1900 block of Holy Names Court, which is near Spokane Falls Community College.
Valencia said responding officers found a man dead inside an apartment there.
Officers were looking for a suspect, who has not been publicly identified, as of Tuesday evening. A physical description of the suspect hasn’t been released.
