KREM 2's Amanda Roley reports from a shooting at the Canyon Greens Apartment complex. (6-5-17 at 5 p.m.)

SPOKANE, Wash. --- The Spokane Police Department is investigating a fatal shooting of a man at the 1000 block of S. Westcliff Place at the Canyon Greens apartment complex just before 2 p.m. on Monday.

The SPD public information officer Josh Laiva said the Major Crimes unit had arrived at the scene. 

Officials said the suspect in the shooting had been detained and there was no threat to the public. He said witnesses in the shooting were all cooperating with police, and it appeared the shooting happened after some sort of disagreement. 

No word on the relationship, if any, between the shooter and victim. Laiva said one of the involved parties called 911 to report the shooting.

To Laiva's knowledge, he said the apartment complex had not had an incident like this before.

SPD is asking any witnesses who have not already been contacted to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
