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. - Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures. It became even more complicated when the Washington Supreme Court overturned a Thurston County judges decision after the judge initially threw out over 300,000 signatures saying the petition didn't follow election law claiming it was unreadable.
