Spokane Valley Police Investigating Drive-By Shooting; Round Lodged Inside Door

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE VALLEY POLICE DEPT: On Tuesday, February 5, 2013, at 7:00 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies Ebel and Holthaus responded to a shots fired call near the area of 4400 E. 1st Street. 

Deputies contacted the owner of the residence, as well as a neighbor, who told them that someone shot at the victim's residence while he and other occupants inside the residence were sleeping. The victim told deputies that there were three shotgun shells at the end of his driveway which the deputies were able to locate.
 
Deputy Ebel entered the residence and saw what appeared to be a gunshot hole that entered a window in the residence and traveled through sheet rock and a door frame.

Deputy Ebel believed the round was lodged inside the door frame leading into the kitchen.  Although there were three shotgun shells, this was the only entry point deputies were able to locate.  None of the occupants inside the residence were injured.
 
A neighbor who called 911 said that he was awake when he heard the shots. He said he went outside and saw a tall, young looking white male running south of the victim's residence. He said the suspect was carrying a black colored shotgun in his hands as he ran from the scene.  The only other description was that the suspect was about 6'3" wearing a black hooded sweatshirt. 

Another neighbor said she was outside smoking when she heard the gunshots. She said shortly after she saw two white males running south on Dearborn.  She said one of the males was carrying a dark rifle in the air as he ran and that they were both white males. She said this subject was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and the other male was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt.
 
Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for anyone providing information leading to an arrest and conviction of the suspect(s) in this case.  Persons with information should call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-800-222-TIPS, or should forward the tip via the Internet website www.crimestoppersinlandnorthwest.org.
