Spokane Police Shooting
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A team from the Spokane County sheriff's
office, Washington State Patrol and Spokane police is investigating
the fatal police shooting of a suicidal man in Spokane who was
armed with a shotgun.
Police say the 45-year-old man had made suicidal threats Monday
at his place of work. He took off when police arrived and rolled
his van at an intersection in the city's lower South Hill
neighborhood. A SWAT team and negotiators responded.
Spokeswoman Jennifer DeRuwe told The Spokesman-Review
officers fired because the man posed a risk
to the community.
