SPOKANE, Wash. - Detectives spent 10 hours Friday completing the preliminary investigation into an officer-involved shooting on Spokane's North Side, but said that not all aspects of the case have been explored and the investigation is far from complete.

Members of the Quad Cities Drug Task Force, assisted by the Spokane Violent Crimes Gang Enforcement Team, served a search warrant at an apartment complex located at 1405 N. Lincoln about 8:15 a.m.  During the entry, a female suspect inside the apartment became non-compliant with officers' instructions.  When she attempted to flee out a bedroom window, officers attempted to restrain her. 

During efforts to prevent her escape, a shot was fired and the woman suffered a minor wound to her upper torso.  She fell out the window and received first aid from containment officers stationed at the back of the apartments.  She was treated and expected to be released from a downtown hospital.  The woman reportedly is 30+ weeks pregnant.

The Critical Incident Protocol was invoked and the shooting is being investigated by detectives from the WSP, Spokane Police Department and Spokane County Sheriff's Office with the Sheriff's Office the lead investigative agency.

The drug search warrant was placed on hold until a search warrant for evidence in the shooting was served and evidence mapped and collected.  Afterward, the drug search warrant was reinitiated.  Detectives found no weapons, but did locate quantities of crack cocaine, marijuana and controlled prescription drugs.  No arrests were made Friday.

The WSP sergeant who fired the shot during service of the original drug search warrant has been placed on administrative leave by that agency.

The Quad Cities Drug Task Force is comprised of investigators from a collection of southeastern Washington law enforcement agencies.

 

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A Washington State Patrol officer shot and wounded a pregnant woman while serving a search warrant at a Spokane apartment building.

The officer was serving the warrant about 8:15 a.m. Friday at the Victoria Apartments. The Spokane County Sheriffs Office is investigating.

The sheriff's office said the woman, who they said is 39 weeks pregnant, was taken to a hospital and does not have life-threatening injuries.

A neighbor, Jason Thompson, told The Spokesman-Review it appeared the woman was shot in the arm or shoulder area.

Authorities have not identified the woman or the officer. He is a member of the Quad City Drug Task Force, which investigates drug crimes in the Pullman and Lewiston, Idaho, areas.
