SPD says officers were closing in on the vehicle driven by 28-year-old Jordan Brown, when a collision happened. Moments later, Brown shot multiple rounds at the police car before fleeing at a high speed.
The police car was disabled and couldn't pursue, but the officer was not hurt.
A large perimeter was set up from Maple to Monroe and from 7th S to 14th including members from SWAT team, K-9 Unit and Air 1. Several resources responded for assistance including from the Spokane County Sheriff's Office and Spokane Valley Police.
After several hours, police received info that Brown was in a different location on the east side of the South Hill. They located him in a vehicle around 5th and Thor and he was safely taken into custody.
Brown will be booked into the Spokane County Jail for his warrant and for a new charge of first-degree assault on an officer, while other charges may be pending in the future.

All roadways are back open as of 6 a.m. Tuesday.
