UPDATED PRESS RELEASE FROM SPD: The Spokane Regional Critical Incident Response Team is continuing its investigation into the officer-involved fatal encounter last night near Progress and Valleyway in Spokane Valley.

The deceased suspect is identified as 50-year-old Quentin D. Dodd, who has a local criminal history. Dodd lived with two other men at 507 N. Sommer Street. Investigators understand that the home's owner offered lodging at the residence to recovering alcohol and drug users.

The involved Spokane Valley police officer provided a tactical debrief on the incident last night and is expected to complete a full interview this week. In addition, an officer who witnessed the event provided a statement yesterday. The officers' names will not be released for at least 72 hours.

Spokane Valley Police officers were dispatched last night (10/24/10) around 7:30 p.m. to a domestic violence call at the Sommer Street location. Initial information called in by the homeowner was that the suspect had a knife in his hand and was arguing with roommates.

The incident qualifies under the domestic violence law because the roommates are considered "household members" who are presently residing together.

Dodd left the residence prior to the arrival of law enforcement. The involved officer located Dodd standing in the middle of Progress just north of Valleyway.

The officer requested assistance, and another officer arrived prior to the fatal encounter. One of the officers fired his duty weapon, striking the suspect and killing him. A sharp Obsidian knife was located near Dodd in the street.
