Early Morning Shooting Leaves One Man Injured
Good Samaritan and Local Company Give Assistance
Spokane Valley Sheriffâ€™s Deputies responded to a reported shooting in the area of Pines and Trent in Spokane Valley just after 7:10 a.m., this morning.
When deputies arrived, they found evidence of the incident but could not locate the victim.Â A few minutes later, they were informed a male with a gunshot wound to his upper leg had just arrived at a local hospital.Â At last report, the victimâ€™s injuries appear to be non-life threatening.
During the investigation, deputies learned a Good Samaritan quickly loaded the victim, who was bleeding severely, into his vehicle and transported him to the hospital.Â After speaking with the Good Samaritan, deputies contacted SERVPRO to possibly help clean and sanitize the Good Samaritanâ€™s vehicle.Â SERVPRO not only agreed to help, but after hearing the story of the citizenâ€™s good deed, offered to clean the vehicle at no charge.
Spokane County Major Crimes detectives were called in to assist but the exact events that led up to the shooting are still unclear.Â Initial information indicates a stolen vehicle may have been involved.
Anyone who may have witnessed or have information regarding this incident is urged to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233 and reference #275141.
The Spokane Valley Police Department and Spokane County Sheriffâ€™s Office would like to thank this citizen, who wants to remain anonymous, and SERVPRO for their outstanding efforts.Â It is citizens and companies like this that are great examples of the wonderful and caring community we live in.
