SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. (AP) - Spokane police are leading the investigation into a shooting by a Spokane Valley sheriff’s deputy.

It happened Friday night after the deputy had pulled over a car and a passenger gave the deputy a false name.

Police and the sheriff’s office say the man tried to run off but was attacked by a police dog and fired a gun at his handler who returned fire and shot the suspect once.

The Spokesman-Review reports (https://bit.ly/1DwzrVi ) he was in stable condition Saturday at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center.

A backup officer from Liberty Lake was wearing a body camera, and investigators are looking at the video to see how much of the incident it shows.
