Spokane County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a deadly shooting that happened in broad daylight near the intersection of Atlantic and Wedgewood in North Spokane.
Just before 1 p.m. witnesses say they heard shots fired near an apartment complex at Rhodes and Atlantic, just one block west of Division Street.
"We heard five or six pops and then we heard a car starting to come down this way and then we saw a car go by as fast as he could, possibly 50 miles an hour. Quickly with one person in the car," witness Pepper Dixon said.
That car was described as a blue Chrysler New Yorker.
After the gunshots witnesses say the driver threw the car in reverse, turned around and sped south on Atlantic.
"I heard four gunshots, like they were really close," John Hamilton said.
Hamilton ran outside to see the victim down in the middle of the street.
"I ran down there, because he was laying on the ground to see if he was OK and they were rendering first aid to him, you know it must have been his friends or neighbors or something and they said you need to stay back and I said 'Do you need any help?' and they said no," Hamilton said.
