SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. -

The Spokane Investigative Regional Response (SIRR) Team is investigating a Spokane County Sheriff's Office officer-involved shooting that happened Monday around 4 p.m. on Highway 195.

The suspect in the shooting, identified as 21-year-old Tina A.M. Fricke, currently faces at least one count of assault and one count of unlawful possession of a firearm. Due to the number of potential victims and witnesses, additional charges are expected.

The incident happened when several people called reporting Fricke was standing in the median of Highway 195 near Excelsior Road, pointing a handgun at passing cars. When a Spokane County deputy arrived, he confronted Fricke, who was still holding the gun. The deputy fired one shot and hit Fricke in the shoulder.

The deputy provided medical aid and Fricke was taken to a local hospital. She is currently listed in stable condition.

No one else was hurt in the shooting and the handgun Fricke had was recovered by investigators at the scene.

Fricke has one previous felony conviction for taking a motor vehicle without permission. 

One of the WSP troopers who arrived on the scene had an in-car camera. Video footage from that camera has not been released.

This continues to be an active investigation. Investigators ask anyone who has not already been contacted by law enforcement and had contact with Fricke earlier in the day, witnessed the incident or may have recorded video of it, to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233 and reference #15-455309.

    A Spokane business owner says enough is enough after finding human feces in front of her doorstep three days in a row. The incidences happened at Neat Old Stuff located at 3rd and Bernard.
