SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane Police recovered a car involved in a Wednesday night drive-by shooting that left a 17-year-old dead and two others injured.
The shooting happened just before 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday near Liberty Park in Spokane. Thanks to a tip from a resident, detectives have located the car believed to be connected to the shooting.
However, police are still looking for a suspect.
Police responded to the shooting around 8:30 p.m. As of now, police are saying that this drive-by does not appear to be random and are searching for a possible suspect(s).
Joe Haun told KREM 2 he heard the scene unfold from the moment shots were fired. When first responders flooded the street, he knew the situation was serious.
"An entire squad of cop cars, three ambulances, a fire truck just kind of show up and start taking off, canvassing the place," he recalled. "It was quite the ordeal. It is pretty horrifying, you know, no one wants a shooter in their neighborhood."
On Thursday, police confirmed a 17-year-old boy was killed and two other young adults were injured.
"Hopefully the people were innocent and not just some random people a part of the drive-by," Haun said. "It's kind of scary that happened so close."
Anyone with any other information pertaining to this case can call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
