SPOKANE, Wash.– The Spokane Police Department says one person is in custody and facing charges for the drive-by shooting outside of a downtown Spokane bar.

Officers said the suspect faces three counts of drive-by shooting related to the shooting outside of Lucky’s Pub.

Three people were shot and injured in the early morning shooting.

Police said a fight had started outside the bar and 911 was being inundated with calls about a shooting with multiple victims.

A crowd poured out of the bar and people were running away from the area.

Officers found three victims in the crowd, all with life-threatening injuries.

A release from the Spokane Police Department said two of the victims, a man and a woman, were shot while standing on the sidewalk outside of the bar. The third victim was a cab driver who was sitting in a taxi parked outside of the bar.

SPD said initial information shows it was a drive-by shooting involving one car. Officers believe shots were fired as the car passed Lucky’s and Mootsy’s bars.

Officers put out a vehicle description and a car matching the suspect was stopped just outside of the city by the Washington State Patrol.

Editor’s Note: Spokane Police issued a correction Monday saying they were inaccurate when they reported two people had died in the shooting. Court records show two victims are on life support.  This story has been updated to reflect the correct information.
