When her husband died, Ashley Johnson knew how some people were bound to remember him. His picture was published and broadcast as one of four men arrested for a shooting at Hoopfest in 2010. Police called it a gang-related shooting, and prosecutors charged the four suspects with about a dozen counts of attempted murder for the number of bystanders who could have been struck by the gunfire.
A man died after an early Saturday morning car crash near Main Avenue and Stone Street in Spokane.
Spokane County prosecutors will not pursue the dozens of attempted murder charges filed against four men arrested after shots were fired at Hoopfest. Deputy Prosecutor Steve Garvin said in court documents filed this week that he will instead seek assault charges against the men, whose lawyers cited lack of probable cause in arguing for the charges’ dismissal in court last week.
Defense attorneys told a judge today that prosecutors don’t have a legal basis for a long list of attempted murder charges levied against three of four men in connection with a shooting at Hoopfest that injured three bystanders.
Four men arrested after a shooting at Hoopfest have each been charged with 12 murder-related felonies. Miguel C. Garcia, 19; Adam Doe, 19; Marquis D.

A Spokane police officer pulled his gun on a suspected accomplice in Saturday’s shooting at Hoopfest but didn’t fire because of the crowd, leading to what he described in court documents as a violent struggle with the teenager. Those allegations contributed to a judge ordering Adam Doe and suspected gunman Miguel C. Garcia, both 19, held on combined bonds of nearly $1 million Tuesday after brief court appearances via video from the jail, where they have been held since Saturday.
The gang-related gunfire that left three bystanders wounded this weekend at Hoopfest was disturbing but not unexpected, authorities said Monday, adding that while security plans are being reviewed for Riverfront Park’s July 4th celebration the quick police response to Saturday’s violence should build community confidence. “We’ve traditionally been prepared for major issues down here,” said Craig Butz, Riverfront Park manager. “In the unfortunate event something does happen I think they’d be in a position to respond very quickly.”
