Gun-wielding suspect involved in north Spokane bar fight

SPOKANE, Wash.- Spokane Police Officers say one man will be arrested and charged with at least one count of First Degree Assault. He's being charged in connection with a fight that ended up with a gun drawn in north Spokane.

It happened just after midnight Wednesday morning at the Special K Tavern and Eatery at 3817 N. Market. Police say a group of people got into a fight outside the bar. The fight escalated to the point that one male went to his car and got a pistol. He came back and forced the others back into the bar at gunpoint.

Police say the other group of people had every reason to believe the suspect would shoot them. While the suspect was distracted, they tackled him and knocked the gun from his hands. During that altercation, the suspect suffered some minor injuries. The tackling group immediately left the bar and fled the scene.

Police showed up just a short time after this and found the gun-wielding suspect bleeding, with several lacerations. He was taken to an area hospital to be treated for minor injuries. Police officers say when he is discharged from the hospital, he will be arrested and charged with First Degree Assault.

There were no serious injuries, and police say the gun never actually went off.
