UPDATE
Cameron Trevino had been arrested on Friday, July 11, by the Spokane Police Department for 1st Degree Assault with a Firearm and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm. These charges stemmed from an incident where Trevino confronted an acquaintance with a firearm. Officers were on scene within a minute of the first call to 911 and were able to apprehend Trevino as well as recover the firearm he had had tried to dispose of in some bushes as he ran

Trevino has a previous felony conviction for Burglary in the 2nd Degree. The SIRR team will not only investigate the shooting itself, but will determine what additional charges Trevino will be facing for this incident.

Spokane Police respond to a shooting at Deaconess Medical Center involving a Spokane County Detention Services Corrections Officer. The Spokane Investigative Regional Response Team has been activated and the Spokane Police will be the lead agency on the investigation.

On 07/14/2014, just after 2 a.m., Spokane Police Patrol officers responded to the report of a Corrections Officer involved in an altercation at Deaconess Hospital. Initial information indicates that a prisoner was awaiting a surgical procedure on the 8th floor when he attempted to escape. The correction officer and the prisoner ended up on the 4th floor where there was an altercation. The Corrections Officer discharged his weapon, but the inmate was not hit. The inmate was taken back into custody.

The scene at Deaconess has been processed, so there will be no impact on hospital operations today.

The Spokane Police Department is the managing agency in this incident. All future communications on this incident will be sent out via the SIRR Team. The next update will likely be released next week.

Spokane County Detention Services will release the name of the Spokane County Corrections Officer involved in this incident.

Once the SIRR Team investigation is complete the case will be forwarded to the Spokane County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
