A Spokane shooting from Wednesday (March 26) has claimed the life of an alleged criminal. The officer-involved shooting took place on the 1500 block of West Grace near Maple after a robbery suspect had been tracked to the location. According to a report from KXLY on Thursday (March 27), a standoff took place before the suspect came outside and confronted officers with a handgun.

Video from the scene reveals that the man was armed with a handgun and had not adhered to a warning to drop his weapon. This was also after several attempts to get him to surrender peacefully with orders given over loudspeakers. While walking toward officers with the gun in hand and after the verbal warning was given, officers opened fire on the man. He was struck several times and reportedly died later at the hospital. The name of the suspect has not been released, nor has the number of shots fired or how many times he was struck.

Clothes at the scene were stated to be similar to those reported from recent armed robberies and a gun tied to another armed robbery was also reportedly recovered from the scene. What had led the authorities to this location was that they suspected the man of committing the armed robbery at Baskin Robbins that took place on Tuesday (March 26).

The officer-involved shooting is currently being investigated by the State Patrol in conjunction with the Spokane County Prosecutor's Office. The name of the suspect in the March 26 Spokane shooting has not yet been identified at this time.
