SPOKANE VALLEY — Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputies and K-9 officers found a shooting suspect early Sunday morning hiding in a Koi Pond, suffering from hypothermia.

Around 2 a.m. Sunday, Deputies were called to Goodtymes Pub in the 9200 block of East Mission on reports of multiple shots fired. When deputies arrived they found a victim with a gunshot wound to his right leg. His injury was not life threatening.

The shooting started as a fight in the parking lot of the pub between two groups of men, according to the sheriff’s department. Witnesses told deputies the shooting suspect ran south from the pub.

He was tracked by K-9 officers and eventually, 23-year-old Aaron P. Williams, was found hiding in a koi pond in the back yard of a home in the 9300 block of East Sinto.

Williams was arrested without incident and checked out by paramedics for hypothermia.

Spokane Valley Police recovered the small semi-automatic pistol used by the suspect. It was hidden in a residential mailbox and has been seized for fingerprinting and evidence.

Williams was booked into Spokane County Jail on a felony count of First-Degree Assault with a Firearm.
