UPDATE: Central Valley Schools Go Into Lockdown

Posted: Updated:
UPDATE FROM Deputy Craig Chamberlin: An adult male, who lives in the Valley, received a call from a friend notifying him of the lockdown at several CV School District schools. When he heard the specifics, he contacted Valley Deputies. He advised deputies he had been walking to a friend's transporting a paint-ball gun. He said he took the CO2 cartridge off the gun which made a popping noise. 

He figured this was what the complainant heard when he realized he had walked by her residence. Deputies contacted the subject and determined this was in fact what the complainant had heard and that there were no shots of any kind fired. 

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE VALLEY POLICE DEPT: On Thursday, May 2, 2013, at 10:45 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies responded to the area of 28th and Blake to the report of a possible shots fired call. 

The complainant told 911 that she saw a white male in his mid twenties, wearing a t-shirt and carrying a black pack. She said the male was carrying a rifle and shooting it into the ground.
 
Multiple deputies, supervisors and detectives from the Valley responded to the area and attempted to locate the suspect. The entire area was searched for over an hour and the suspect was not located.  There were no other calls pertaining to the initial shots fired call.
 
Central Valley School Resource Deputies contacted the school district and the decision was immediately made to put nine schools in the area on lockdown. After it was determined the suspect was not in the area and there was no danger to the students and faculty, the schools were taken off lockdown status.
 
Anyone with information pertaining to this incident is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
