Swat situation in Spokane Valley

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Spokane Valley Sheriff’s deputies along with Spokane County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team members and Hostage Negotiators successfully ended a 3-hour standoff with a wanted convicted felon in the 7400 block of East 3rd Avenue in Spokane Valley.  The suspect, 35-year-old Keiley E. Herrin, was believed to be armed and had previously fired a pistol into the ground next to two victims during an argument on July 8th.

 

At approximately 08:45 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff’s Deputy Tom Walker arrived in the 7400 block of East 3rd Avenue to attempt to locate Herrin.  Deputy Walker gained information leading him to believe Herrin was in fact, inside the garage where he lives but Herrin would not respond or exit the building. 

 

Knowing Herrin may still be in possession of the firearm used on July 8th and may have had access to additional firearms, several other deputies along with the SWAT Team and Negotiators where called to the scene to assist. 

 

After continued PA announcement and several unsuccessful attempts, negotiators finally made contact with Herrin.  At approximately 11:45 a.m., with the garage surrounded and the SWAT Team in place, this very dangerous situation ended successfully when Herrin agreed to exit the garage, unarmed, and he was taken into custody.

 

Detectives are currently at the scene searching the building after obtaining a search warrant.

 

Herrin was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for two Felony charges of Assault 2nd and a charge of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm.

 

Due to the professionalism, training and tactics of our deputies, SWAT Team and Negotiators, thankfully, no one was injured during this incident and the suspect was successfully taken into custody.
