NEW DETAILS: Spokane Man Shot In The Head

SPOKANE, Wash. - A Spokane man who shot another man while driving this weekend has confessed to the shooting. According to Spokane County Superior Court documents 27-year-old Robert D. Startin told detectives he shot 26-year-old Shane Reilly in the head while Reilly drove them around their apartment near Sixth and Sunderland this Saturday.

Documents say Reilly and three of his friends were drinking at a fire pit at his apartment on South Woodruff when a man named "Rob" walked up and asked if he could join the group. Rob did not know any of the people. According to the court documents, after some time, someone at the party said the "big guy" here is a child molester, referring to Reilly.

Documents say this made Startin mad because he had a relative that was molested. Startin then told the party he was going to go back his apartment, which is in the same complex, to get more alcohol. Instead, docs say he went and got a .45 caliber gun.

Once he returned to the party, Reilly took Startin for a ride in his 1962 Chevy. They drove around the neighborhood for a while. Friends tried to get Reilly to stop because they said he was too drunk but kept driving. Once they turned the corner, a friend said he heard a "pop" and then a crash. The friend ran to the corner and saw Startin running.

Reilly had been shot behind the ear and his Chevy crashed into a utility trailer parked on the corner. Medics found Reilly unconscious with no pulse but managed to revive him. He was on life support at hospital last time checked.

Documents then say Startin ran away from the shooting and went to bed. When he got up he put his clothes in the wash including a baseball cap with a 2nd Amendment logo on it.

He was arrested later at his home. He faces first degree assault charges, a felony.
