The Spokane Police Major Crimes Unit along with members of the Spokane Regional Safe Streets Task Force (SRSSTF) are investigating a shooting that occurred in the 2100 block of west Sharp early this morning. Two male victims were shot, one sustaining life threatening injuries. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.

Just after 5:00am this morning, July 30, 2016, Spokane Police responded to the report of a shooting in the 2100 block of west Sharp. Police arrived on scene to find two male victims on scene had been shot. One victim sustained life threatening injuries.

Witnesses on scene are currently being interviewed and the scene is being processed. Sharp from Nettleton to Cannon is closed and will be until at least 9:00am, so motorists are asked to use an alternate route. At this time it does not appear this scene is related to the scene on west Maxwell. Detectives also do not believe this crime was random and there is no danger to the public in general. They are asking anyone with information on this incident that has not been contacted by police to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.

The Spokane Regional Safe Streets Task Force in comprised of investigators from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office, Spokane Valley Police Department, Spokane Police Department, Washington State Patrol, Washington State Department of Corrections and the FBI. The SRSSTF is a FBI sponsored task force working to alleviate the criminal activities of gangs, violent criminals and upper level drug traffickers.
