OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: Names of the six officers involved in last Friday's fatal confrontation with a shotgun-wielding gunman were released by investigators Wednesday.

Dan Cole, Bill Hager, Bruce Palmer, Doug Strosahl, Kyle Heuett and Mike McNab were part of a large contingent of officers who responded to the active shooter scenario involving 29-year-old Ethan A. Corporon at Monroe and Indiana.

The six officers have a combined 86 years of police service in Spokane.

On Friday, officers began responding to a reported shooting in the 1400 block of West Buckeye shortly after 3 p.m.  Witnesses reported a man firing numerous shotgun rounds at a home there.

As they began arriving in the area, Corporon drove away in an older Chevrolet pickup.  The truck was stopped by officers at Monroe and Indiana and the suspect exited the vehicle still armed with the shotgun.

Officers began firing on him when he refused to drop the weapon and it appeared he was about to run into the Shari's Restaurant at that location.  Instead, he ran through the parking lot and continued westbound toward the nearby residential neighborhood.

At Madison and Indiana, Corporon was struck by police bullets and died.  Detectives said Wednesday that a total of 26 shots were fired by officers.

All six of the officers provided statements to detectives Friday night so that evidence of the shooting could be preserved and collected.

Four have since provided follow-up interviews.  The two remaining officers had not scheduled follow-up interviews as of Wednesday afternoon.

Both the home on Buckeye and Corporon's home on East Fourteenth in the city were searched after the shooting and both contained marijuana growing operations which were seized and processed by SPD drug detectives.

Investigative teams comprised of the sheriff's office, Washington State Patrol and Spokane Police continue the investigation into the two shootings.  Various laboratory tests of evidence are expected to take six to eight weeks.

Dan Cole was hired by the Spokane Police Department in March 1986; Bill Hager in January 1991; Bruce Palmer in February 1997; Doug Strosahl in February 1998; Kyle Heuett in January 2001; and Mike McNab in August 2001. They remain on administrative leave.
