UPDATE: Burglary Suspect Shot In The Area Of Nevada & Gordon

Spokane Police Department Press Release:

SPOKANE, Wash. - At 10:20 Monday morning, Spokane Police responded to a possible shooting near 1023 E. Gordon. The caller reported hearing several gunshots from a nearby house twenty minutes prior. Police contacted the homeowner, who said two men were attempting to steal items from her back yard, and she shot them. The men fled in a truck. 

Officers spent the next several hours searching for the men, concerned for their health as they both may have suffered from gun shot wounds.  Officers located one man near 2100 E. Empire, who had a bullet lodged in the back of his head.  He was transported to a local hospital for treatment, but refused to tell officers the name of the other man that was with him. 

Major Crimes detectives executed a search warrant on the residence on Gordon, to gather evidence from the burglary and shooting.  Officers located numerous marijuana plants inside the home, as well as growing in an outdoor garden.  Detectives are investigating possible marijuana law violations.
