After seeing a murder suspect’s tats showing his love for Spokane, Wash. Dori Monson said he only wished the man was from another Washington town.

“My only regret is that this guy isn’t from Humptulips,” Monson tweeted.

Police say investigators had determined Mellon was a person of interest in a fatal shooting in Spokane and they were looking for him.

Mellon was taken to a hospital in Portland in critical condition.
