STEVENS COUNTY, Wash. -

Just after 6 PM Tuesday night, a Stevens County detective was called to a disturbance call in the 2400 block of Scott road in Rice, Washington. According to the Spokane Investigative Regional Response Team, the detective arrived and was immediately fired upon by a man. The SIRR team is the outside investigating agency for the shooting. The SIRR team says the detective was hit by shotgun pellets as he got out of his car then returned fire hitting and killing the suspect.

On Wednesday, KHQ learned the name of the detective involved in the shooting. Dwayne Johnson is nearly a 20 year veteran of the Stevens County Sheriffs Department. Johnson told KHQ's Dylan Wohlenhaus on Wednesday he could not talk about the investigation but Johnson had visible shotgun pellet wounds on his hand and ear. Johnson also says "it happened so fast." Johnson is currently on administrative leave which is standard for a deputy involved shooting.

KHQ also spoke with the owner of the home where the shooting happened. He says that no one who lived at the home was involved with the shooting. He says a neighbor came over and was causing trouble. Thats when the homeowner called 911 and detective Johnson arrived. The Spokane Investigative Regional Response team is now investigating the shooting. It will determine, in part with prosecutors if Johnson was justified in the shooting.

    MUMBAI - A surgical team in India successfully removed a massive brain tumor from a man Thursday, weighing over 4 pounds. It was a lengthy, nearly seven-hour procedure and doctors believe it could be the heaviest ever recorded.  The tumor, which protruded from the top of the man's skull, was so large that it seemed “like a head on top of another head,” Trimurti Nadkarni, head of the neurosurgery department at Nair Hospital, told the Indian Express.
