SPOKANE, Wash. - According to Lt. Dave McCabe of the Spokane Police Department, police responded to a call from a man in a home at the intersection of Sanson and Lidgerwood this morning at 5:55am.
The man was whispering and said he needed help. Police quickly arrived at the home, and talked to other people who were leaving the house. They told police that the man who called was inside the bathroom and had a handgun.
Police tried to get this man to come out of the bathroom and the home but had no luck. Then they heard a gunshot and so extra police officers were dispatched to the scene.
Within an hour, police were able to get the man to come out of the home. He was not injured but did have a registered handgun. No criminal charges were filed against him but he was taken to the hospital to be treated for drug use as it appeared to officers he was under the influence of drugs this morning.
