SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Police Department's Patrol Anti Crime Team arrested Crystal Abad Saturday night. She was wanted for 1st Armed Robbery in the County, for allegedly shooting her ex boyfriend.

UPDATED FROM PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE VALLEY POLICE DEPT: Spokane County Sheriff's detectives are investigating a robbery and shooting that occurred Sunday November 11th in the Spokane Valley.   

This incident was reported by the male victim who called Spokane County 911 around 11:40 a.m. Sunday morning. He stated he had been shot and was on his way to the hospital for medical treatment.

Spokane Valley Sheriff's deputies contacted the victim at the hospital and a short time later, they located the scene where the shooting took place in the area of South Bates Drive and Bates Court. The incident appears to have started when the suspect, identified as 24-year-old Crystal L. Abad called the victim and asked to borrow some money. 

The victim agreed to meet Abad in the area of 10th and Pines Avenue. Abad arrived at the location as a passenger of what is believed to be an early 2000s Gold Jeep Cherokee or Laredo with an unidentified male driver.

The victim reportedly had his money in his hands when Abad reached out and grabbed all of it.  She jumped back into the Jeep and the male drove away. The victim began following the Jeep as he called Abad. She agreed to stop and the Jeep pulled over in the area of South Bates Drive and Bates Court, just east of Bowdish Rd. 

Abad and the victim exited the vehicles and Abad pulled out what is believed to be a small caliber handgun and shot the victim.  She returned to the Jeep and the unidentified male drove away again.   

The victim sustained a non-life threatening injury from one gunshot to the area of his shoulder. Abad and the victim are known to each other and the investigation into this incident is ongoing. 

Abad is described as a white female with a dark tan, 5'04", 130lbs with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen as a passenger in what is believed to be an early 2000s Gold Jeep Cherokee or Laredo with a possible broken rear taillight lens covered with red tape. 

If you know where Abad is, happen to see her or have any information about this incident, please call Crime Check immediately at 509-456-2233. Do not approach Abad as she may still be armed.
