SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane police are now investigating an incident that left a woman with non-life-threatening injuries as an assault instead of a shooting.
Spokane Police Officer John O'Brien said multiple reports were made of a woman hanging from the passenger side of a vehicle, saying she had been shot, at about 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Officers found the woman in the vehicle shortly after in the 2100 block of Browne's Addition behind an apartment complex.
Police originally thought the woman's injuries were life-threatening, but she was then taken to a local hospital and her injuries were said to be non-life-threatening, O'Brien said. He also said that information obtained at the scene had led police to believe the woman was assaulted, not shot.
