SPOKANE VALLEY (AP) — The Spokane County sheriff says one man has been killed in an officer-involved shooting in the city of Spokane Valley.
Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich says a sheriff’s deputy tried to conduct a traffic stop on a reckless driver on Sunday evening, but the man continued driving, initiating a chase.
The sheriff’s office says the man drove recklessly and continued to hit parked cars, go into opposite lanes and swerve at high speed.
At one point the suspect drove toward a marked patrol car with two deputies inside. The sheriff’s office says one deputy fired his gun, hitting the suspect, who died at the scene.
