Stevens County Sheriff's Deputies Searching For Shooting Suspect Who Fled Into Woods

Posted: Updated:

The Stevens County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting that began in Chewelah on Friday night. Sheriff Kendall Allen says the suspect, identified as 31-year-old Britton Hanson, was chasing a man while shooting at him before traveling to a home in south Stevens County.

Deputies received a tip and were waiting for Hanson at the home but as he arrived he jumped out of the car and ran off into the woods.

The Sheriff used a new system called "Hyper Reach" to call people in the specific area to alert them of the armed suspect in the woods.

Investigators have an idea of what precipitated this but are not releasing it yet.

No one was injured and they are still actively searching for Hanson.
