Deputies were called to a home in the 12900 block North Yale for a report of shots fired around 11:30 a.m. When they arrived on scene, they contacted a 38-year-old man who then ran into a fifth-wheel trailer on the property, according to deputies on scene. No one else was inside the trailer with him.

Deputies said the man had a firearm but he is a convicted felon, so he likely had the gun illegally, according to Spokane County Sheriff’s Corporal Mark Gregory.  

Gregory said a search warrant was obtained for the property around 2:30 p.m.
