?Previous Coverage: 

Detectives in Spokane Valley are hoping you can help them find a 48-year-old man suspected of binding a woman, assaulting her and then shooting her. 

Detectives say Monday night, a deputy noticed a car with it's turn signal on near Adams and Broadway. The deputy drove pas the car, noticed the signal went off and the car took off at a high rate of speed. The deputy, believing this was suspicious, turned around to investigate, but lost sight of the car. 

Continuing to look, the deputy noticed a set of tail lights in an alley between a home and a shop on E. Broadway. near Progress Elementary. The deputy noticed it was the same car that took off earlier, checked the VIN and found it was not stolen. However, he did notice a shotgun sitting on the passenger seat and what appeared to be blood and a cellphone on the ground by the driver's door. 

Due to the circumstances and not knowing if someone was hurt, deputies opened the phone for information and found a video of a woman who appeared to be tied up against her will and being assaulted. 

Believing there was a victim who was injured and in desperate need of help, deputies began searching the area, notified local hospitals and called out Major Crimes Detectives.  

Deputies learned that a woman, who appeared to have been assaulted and shot, arrived at a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

This investigation is active and detectives have identified the suspect as the victim’s boyfriend, Daniel L. Johnson.  Johnson is currently wanted for Assault 1st Degree (DV) and Unlawful Imprisonment, but additional charges are expected.  He has a history of being armed and should be considered armed and dangerous. 

Johnson is described as a white male, approximately 6’02”, medium build with short red hair and blue eyes. 

Anyone with information regarding this violent assault, Daniel L. Johnson’s location, or has information regarding Johnson’s criminal activities leading up to this incident is urged to call 911.     

Johnson also fled from deputies and should be considered armed and dangerous.
