UPDATE: Deadly Officer Involved Shooting In Spokane Valley

OFFICIAL UPDATED PRESS RELEASE: Spokane County Sheriffs Deputies were justified in their use of force, according to Jack Driscoll, Spokane County Prosecutor's Office. Spokane Police Major Crimes detectives received a letter from Driscoll stating Deputy Olson was justified in his use of deadly force in the October 24, 2010 shooting of Quentin Dodd.

On October 24, 2010, at 7:35pm, the owner of the clean and sober house (507 N. Sommer) Quentin Dodd was living in called 911 to report that Dodd had cut himself after an argument with other tenants.

Dodd left the house carrying an 8 inch long "Indian arrow" type object. Five minutes later at 7:40pm, Deputy Rustin Olson approached the area from Sullivan, while Deputy Todd Miller approached from Progress.

Both officers observed the object in Dodd's hand. Dodd ran at Deputy Olson, and Olson drew his weapon and retreated. When Dodd got to within 7 or 8 feet, Olson fired three shots at Dodd's chest.

Dodd dropped to the ground, rolled over and the knife fell out of his hand. Shots were fired at 7:42pm. The autopsy showed Dodd died from the gunshot wounds; toxicology reports showed positive for amphetamines.

After reviewing the case, Driscoll concluded that Dodd was armed with what appeared to be a deadly weapon, disregarded numerous requests to drop the weapon from both Deputy Miller and Deputy Olson, who was retreating when he fired as Dodd closed in on him.
