UPDATE: Sheriff's Detectives Investigating Shooting Near Rockford

UPDATE: Official Press Release From Spokane County Sheriff's Department

SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - A 23-year-old Spokane man suffered a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his left thigh at an early morning party in South Spokane County.

Sheriff's Major Crimes and Gang detectives spent most of the day Sunday trying to sort out the circumstances of the shooting, but were hampered by a non-cooperative victim and witnesses.

Deputies were called to the home in the 16000 block of South Molter Road about 1:40 a.m. by a hysterical woman who couldn't provide the exact address for the home.  She used mail in the house to direct law enforcement to the shooting scene.

Deputies found the injured man on the floor of the front porch and said evidence indicated the shooting occurred at that location.  Detectives obtained a search warrant and collected shotgun pellets from the porch, but did not find the shotgun.

The victim was taken to a downtown hospital for treatment where he was listed in satisfactory and stable condition Sunday afternoon.  Hospital staff recovered shotgun pellets from his wound that were also seized as evidence.

Deputies said Sunday afternoon that they had developed no specific suspect in the shooting and urged anyone with information to contact Crime Check at 456-2233.
