SCSO investigates possible homicide

SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. --- Spokane County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a possible homicide on Keeney Road near E. Stutler Road.

Deputies told KREM 2 there is one deceased man involved and no suspects have been taken into custody.

They said the man was found dead of an "apparent altercation."  

"Right now, our major crimes detectives are on the scene and they will be investigating this," said Mark Gregory, the public information officer for SCSO. 

There was a juvenile at the scene when deputies responded at about 7:20 a.m. on Tuesday. The child was not injured and officials said the child did not witness the incident. 

"We do not believe that this is a random act," explained Gregory. "We believe that the suspect knew the victim."

Gregory said detectives were talking to neighbors on Tuesday to find witnesses and get background information on the victim.

Just after 9 a.m. deputies were waiting on a search warrant. Anyone with information on the incident is urged to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
