Spokane police shot more people in 2017 than they have in decades; almost half were Native

For hours after he was shot by a Spokane Police officer in December 2017, Joshua Spotted Horse's body lay in the street uncovered, handcuffed and shirtless. Passersby took pictures and posted them to social media.

It was the day after Christmas when Spotted Horse became the seventh person shot by Spokane Police in 2017. Following a foot chase, Spotted Horse reached in his waistband when an officer shot and killed him, according to the prosecutor's summary of the incident, though police later determined his hands were empty.
