Woman shot with flare gun

SPOKANE, Wash.- Right now police officers are looking for someone they say shot a flare gun into the face of a woman.

It happened just after 1:30 Tuesday morning at the Top Hat Bar and Pub, 6412 N. Division. Police officers say a man and woman were sitting next to each other at the bar when they started arguing. Right now there is no indication of what led to the argument, but police say the suspect, a male, warned his female companion he would shoot her in the face with a flare gun.

A short time later, the suspect actually did shoot her in the face with a flare gun then left the bar and went an unknown direction. Officers arrived to the scene a short time later and found the woman with serious phosphorus burns to her face.

She was transported to Sacred Heart Medical Center with serious burns. The suspect remains at large this morning.

Anyone with any information is urged to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
