UPDATE: SWAT Situation Over In North Central Spokane

UPDATE: Spokane Police began receiving several emergency calls, directing police to the area of 1600  N. Wall, around 8:30pm. The calls indicated someone may be held against their will by armed subjects inside the home.

Responding officers found 44-year-old Steven Luke and 31-year-old Moises Guevara inside a vehicle parked in front of the house. As officers approached the car, they could see a handgun inside the car.
