Spokane Valley Woman Shot In Kitchen During Home Invasion

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: A 50-year-old Spokane Valley woman suffered minor injuries early Sunday when she was attacked by armed men in the kitchen of her home.

A neighbor called 911 shortly after midnight and reported that the woman in the adjacent duplex was screaming for help. The home is in the 11300 block of East 40th.

The neighbors also reported seeing two men leaving the area, both wearing ski masks and one carrying a pistol.

The victim told officers she was in the kitchen when she was suddenly attacked from behind by a man wearing thick gloves and a ski mask. She began fighting with him and a second man entered the kitchen and said he would shoot her again if she did not stop fighting.

The woman had not realized she had been shot at all until he made the statement. He fired a pistol and she was struck in the thigh. During the fracas, the open door of the dishwasher was stepped on and broken, and the victim suffered the loss of a tooth which was later found on the kitchen floor.

The two suspects fled, reportedly empty-handed. One of them, 36-year-old Bradley B. Cooper, was later found and arrested. He was carrying a high-powered bb or air soft pistol at the time and was booked into the Spokane County Jail on a First-Degree Burglary  charge.

Officers have identified the second man and a female who drove a getaway vehicle, but those two had not been located as of noon Sunday.

The female victim was transported to a hospital where she was treated for a pellet wound in each of her thighs, as well as for her mouth injury. She told officers she had no idea what the suspects were looking for, but that she did occasionally provide housing to people who use controlled substances.
