Police responded to reports of an altercation just after 2 a.m. Monday involving a corrections officer from the Spokane County Detention Center.  Authorities said an inmate, Cameron A. Trevino, 26,  was awaiting a surgical procedure on the eighth floor of the building when he attempted to escape.  The Corrections Officer chased him to the fourth floor of the building, where the officer fired his weapon according to police.

The Spokane Police Department said the bullet that was fired went into a wall on the fourth floor, Trevino was not hit. Authorities took Trevino back into custody according to Spokane Police.

Deaconess leaders said hospital operations would not be affected by the altercation.

Trevino was arrested Friday after he pointed a silver semiautomatic handgun at an acquaintance's chest and said, “I will kill you,” according to court documents. Authorities booked him into jail on charges for 1st Degree Assault with a Firearm and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm according to jail records. Trevino has a prior felony conviction for 2nd Degree Burglary.

 

The Spokane Investigative Response Team, led by Spokane Police Department, is investigating. Police have not yet released name of the officer involved.
