Gun found near man shot by police

Investigators found a pistol near the body of a man shot to death by Spokane police Saturday night outside of a Hillyard tavern, authorities said Sunday. Police were dispatched to the Special K Tavern after receiving a 911 call Saturday about a man with a gun inside the bar, but it remains unclear what prompted the fatal gunfire. The 911 caller told dispatchers that her companion had gone outside with the man to “talk him down,” according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office, which is investigating the shooting.
