SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Police have released more information on a shooting in Spokane Valley that left one suspect dead and an officer injured. 

According to the Spokane Police Department (SPD), it started when officers began investigating a reported robbery/carjacking that occurred in Airway Heights on Thursday, Sept. 10. 

A witness had reportedly described a suspect who displayed a .45 caliber pistol. A short pursuit ensued but was called off due to the suspect's dangerous driving behavior. 

Another chase began when Spokane Police spotted the vehicle in the city but the pursuit was called off once more due to public safety concerns. 

On Friday, just after 10:25 a.m., police were able to relocate the suspect vehicle. However, when they attempted to stop it, the driver fled at a high rate of speed. 

Officers eventually found the vehicle in the parking lot of the Spokane Valley Rodeway Inn. As they moved in, the suspect exited the vehicle and exchanged gunfire with an officer. 

Both the officer and the suspect were shot. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene after life-saving measures were attempted. The officer was shot in the leg and taken to the hospital where he is in stable condition. 

Several witnesses were detained, questioned and were cooperating with the investigation. 

The identities of the officer and the suspect will be released at a later time. 

At least one officer on scene was equipped with a body-worn video camera. Any footage captured by the body camera, as well as any footage captured by cameras in the area, will be reviewed by investigators. 

Protocol for an officer-involved shooting was enacted and the SIIR Team is on scene investigating the incident.
