SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - The two Spokane Valley police officers involved in a shooting last week have been identified as Aaron Childress and Griffin Criswell - both with more than 10 years experience as law enforcement officers.

Friday afternoon, the officers responded to a report of a suicidal man in the 4700 block of E. 3rd Ave. in Spokane Valley.

A friend of David Glidden's called police to report that Glidden was suicidal. The friend told police dispatch that Glidden had a gun and he heard Glidden "cock" the gun.

When the officers arrived at the house, Glidden walked out of the house with a handgun. 

Shots were fired by both officers, at least one of which hit Glidden who was transported to a local hospital to be treated for gunshot wounds. 

Glidden's condition has been upgraded to serious but stable condition.

Glidden had only been living in the home for a few days, and was the only one at the home at the time of the shooting.

Spokane Police Major Crimes detectives executed a search warrant of the home and collected an "airsoft" replica of a Colt .45 caliber semi automatic handgun from the front steps of the house.

    SPOKANE, Wash. George Simpkins packed his bags and moved from Ohio to Spokane to start a new job. But when he got to the Lilac City, his string of bad luck started.  “That never happened,” said Simpkins. “I’ve had temporary jobs off and on.” It’s been several years since Simpkins moved to Spokane, and the now 48-year-old hasn’t been able to keep a job, but it’s not due to lack of effort. “I’ve lost a couple of jobs because
