Manhunt follows fatal Spokane stabbingJune 8, 2014 @ 11:33 am
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- A tense six-hour long manhunt through a neighborhood followed a fatal stabbing in downtown Spokane on Saturday.
Spokane police eventually arrested the suspect, 40-year-old Donald T. Phillips, who already had an outstanding warrant for his arrest.
The stabbing happened around 3:30 p.m. at a transit station. The man stabbed died at the hospital. The suspect fled on foot. Soon after a homeowner in the neighborhood of Peaceful Valley called police to say he'd seen the suspect. A second homeowner called police as well, saying a man had barged into his home and threatened him with a knife.
Police responded with numerous officers, dogs and air support. By 9 p.m., Phillips was arrested without incident.
