SPOKANE—Medics rushed a man to the hospital early Tuesday after a passerby found him bleeding in the middle of the road in Spokane.

Authorities said a woman was driving near Sprague and Altamont when she crossed the man’s path.  She said he was holding his side yelling he had been shot.

The woman was the only person to call police.  Authorities said when they arrived on scene; they determined the man had actually been stabbed.  They said the victim doesn’t speak English and was intoxicated.

Detectives brought in a K9 unit to search the area for possible suspects.  The victim told police the suspect is a white woman.  However, detectives said they do not have a hard suspect, just a person of interest.  Authorities said prostitution, drugs, or both could play a role in the investigation.

Authorities said the victim’s stab wound did not appear to be life-threatening.
