SPOKANE, Wash. - Detectives have taken a juvenile runaway into custody, believing she was present during a shooting that occured on Post St. Tuesday morning. She was reported as a runaway on March 23, 2008.

Just before 2:00 Spokane Police responded to a shots fired call in the 4300 hundred block of north Post St.  While officers were checking the area for any signs of a shooting, a Holy Family hospital, in north Spokane, reported that a shooting victim had just checked in. 

According to officers, a 46-year-old woman was walking on the 4300 block of north Post St with her niece.  The victim says that she heard 2-4 gunshots and then was struck one time in the middle of the back.  A friend picked up the two women, and took them to Holy Family. Her injuries are said to be non-life-threatening.

Officers say that in a statement from the victim's niece, she says she saw approximately 8 males in their 20's fighting in the street.  As they walked past this group, she heard the gunshots, one of which, she says, hit her aunt.

Neither the victim, nor her niece, has any idea who shot the gun, or whether it was aimed intentionally.  Spokane Police Department is asking for your help in identifying the shooter, or shooters, in this incident.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call 242-TIPS.
