UDPATE: Police Investigating Shooting In Northeast Spokane

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police are investigating a drive-by shooting at a home in northeast Spokane which happened Tuesday morning. Police say at around 8:30AM two men in a white SUV pulled into a back alley behind a home in the 1200 block of E. Queen just off of Nevada and shot four times. Out of the four shots, three hit a parked car including one near the gas tank, one in the rear passenger side door, and one in the passenger side window. The fourth shot is unaccounted for so far. No bullets appeared to hit the home and no injuries were reported.

One of the men who lives at the home, James Morris, said he was in bed watching TV when he heard 32:55 "Pop, pop, pop, pop!"

Morris said he ran outside, saw a white SUV tearing down the alley behind his home, and then saw the bullets sprayed across his sister's car. "I want to know who it is, I want them caught, I want them dealt with," Morris said.

Although a motive has not been established, Morris believes the bullets were meant for his nephew. "I'm sure this is retaliation for what my nephews out there doing in the streets," Morris said.

After a four-year stint in prison for assault, Morris said is nephew moved back in with the family a few months ago. "I said a stipulation for coming back here was that he was going to straighten out his life," he said.

Although it appears no bullets hit the home, his nephew's window room was just feet from where the shots were fired. After the shooting, Morris said his nephew took off.

"This is what we get for trying to help him out."

Police are still investigating and if you know anything about this shooting you are asked to call Crime Check immediately at 509-456-2233.
