Saturday Night Shooting Sends Juvenile to the Hospital with Gunshot Wound

Shortly after midnight on 10/24/2021, Spokane Police Officers responded to a shooting call in the area of E Nebraska Ave and N Helena St in Northeast Spokane. Numerous callers, including an off-duty police officer, reported seeing a group of juveniles walking in the area before hearing multiple gunshots. The off-duty officer advised he had located a juvenile victim with a gunshot wound.

Responding officers quickly joined the off-duty officer in providing immediate medical attention. Medical treatment was taken over by AMR and Spokane Fire Department personnel. The victim was transported to an area hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound.

The victim advised they were riding their bicycle home from a friend’s house when they encountered a group of teenagers and the shooting subsequently occurred. A large perimeter was created around the scene of the shooting. A police K9 responded to attempt to track the suspect, but they were unable to locate anyone.

The investigation is on-going and SPD is attempting to develop suspect information. Preliminary information suggests this may not have been a random act. Anyone with knowledge of the shooting, or observed anything suspicious before the incident, is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233 and reference case number 2021-20183363.
