SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - Earlier this week, after an hours long standoff with Spokane County Deputies, a woman was shot in the hand. On Friday, the Spokane County Sheriff's Office identified the deputy who fired the shot as 13-year veteran Deputy Mike McNees.

The incident began on Tuesday morning when a man and woman, identified as 32-year-old Eric Heil and 37-year-old Bonnie Ulrick, wanted on felony warrants out of Montana barricaded themselves in a room at Motel 6 in Spokane Valley. 

After an hours long standoff with SWAT, deputies say Ulrick pointed a pistol out of the window of the hotel room toward deputies, and that's when McNees fired, hitting Ulrick in the hand. She was transported to Harborview in Seattle and is expected to be ok. 

The Sheriff's Office says McNees is a 13-year veteran with the department assigned to patrol his entire career. He has been a member of the Spokane County SWAT Team for 11 years, is an assistant Team Leader and has held the position of sniper on the team his entire tenure.
