Police investigating shooting as attempted murder

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - A reward is being offered for information in a case police are treating as an attempted murder after a man drove himself to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his back.

Police say around 2 a.m. Friday they were called to 5th and Cowley after witnesses reported hearing gunshots. Around the time officers arrived on scene, a man arrived at the hospital with a gunshot wound.

The man, who was shot while in his car, did not know where the shots came from, but told officers that they sounded close.

One of the bullets, entering the car front-to-back, appeared to be the shot that injured the victim. A second bullet hole was located just in front of the driver's door.

Officers later found two bullet casings at the intersection where the shots were reported.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
