Suspect on the loose after South Hill shooting


Spokane Police confirmed that this is now a homicide investigation. One of the shooting victims is dead and the other is in critical condition. Officers are still searching for the suspect who is described as a black woman 25-35 years old.


Spokane Police are searching for a shooting suspect after two people were shot in the area of 10th and Cannon on the lower South Hill neighborhood, which was reported around 3:20 Tuesday afternoon.

Officers closed roads in about a three-block radius around some apartment complexes around the area while they search using a K-9 and a helicopter. They ask neighbors in the area to stay indoors while police conduct their search.

Avoid the area if possible. 

Officers say the situation is potentially dangerous and that they are searching for a female shooting suspect.
