Large Fight Ends with Stabbing
On July 26th, 2015, at approximately 2:00 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriffâ€™s Deputies and Spokane County Sheriffâ€™s Air 1 responded to a large fight call (estimate of 50-74 people) at 10101 E. Main Avenue in Spokane Valley.Â Air 1 captured some FLIR video of the fight as deputies responded to the chaotic and violent scene.
The video clip shows an initial fight taking place but the situation appeared to begin to breakup on its own.Â A couple minutes later, the individuals involved came back together and the fight continued.Â Once deputies arrived, they located an adult male bleeding from what appeared to be a stab wound to his chest.Â Deputy Watts quickly provided medical care to the victim who was bleeding heavily from the wound.Â His first attempt to slow the bleeding was unsuccessful, so he quickly applied QuickClot to the wound, along with pressure, which substantially slowed the bleeding and potentially saved the victimâ€™s life.Â He continued providing medical care until he was relieved by Spokane Valley Fire and AMR medical personnel.
Individuals at the scene told deputies they didnâ€™t witness the assault, were not cooperative when questioned and provided very little information.Â The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was listed in stable condition.Â He told deputies he did not know who stabbed him.
Spokane Regional Safe Streets Task Force members are investigating the incident and ask anyone who has information regarding this assault or can help identify the individuals involved to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233 and reference incident number 15-256375.
Spokane Regional Safe Streets Task Force is comprised of members from the Spokane County Sheriffâ€™s Office, Spokane Valley Police, Spokane Police Department, Washington State Patrol, FBI, U.S. Border Patrol, DEA, ATF and the Washington State Department of Corrections.
