The prosecutor's office says no charges will be filed against the seven sheriff's deputies involved in the fatal shooting of a man in Spokane Valley last summer.
SPOKANE VALLEY — The Spokane County prosecutor’s office says seven sheriff’s deputies involved in the fatal shooting of a man in Spokane Valley last summer were justified in their use of lethal force.
Last August, deputies responded to a driver who had pulled into a gas station and was pointing a pistol that at one point he fired into his vehicle.
The prosecutor’s office says 42-year-old Brian Bayne eventually pointed his pistol at deputies and several officers opened fire.
Deputies and paramedics then approached the truck and determined that Bayne was deceased.
