UPDATE: Man Shot At 'Problem Residence' In East Central Neighborhood

Posted: Updated:

Spokane Police Department Press Release:

Spokane Police Major Crimes Detectives are investigating the shooting of a Spokane man at a problem home late last night.  Witnesses say the man, Jeremy Paul Lambert, 35, was inside his home, located at 1607 E. Pacific when a group of men approached the home and fired shots through the door. Lambert was transported to a local hospital and treated for a single gunshot wound to the chest.

On 03/01/2013 at 11:18, SPD received a call from the Jeremy Lambert's roommate reporting that Lambert had just been shot. When officers responded to the scene, Lambert's roommates told them that 3 or 4 white males had gathered at the back of the home where a person in the group fired 4-5 shots through the door striking Lambert, who was standing inside the home. Lambert was transported to a local hospital and treated for a single gunshot wound to the chest.

SPD Major Crimes Detectives are investigating to determine if this shooting is related to an incident happening earlier in the day yesterday where officers responded to a deceased person in front of the same house.

This location is a known problem residence and a focus of emphasis patrols in SPD's effort to reduce crime.
