SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Spokane police fired shots at a man they believed was trying to rob a Chinese restaurant, but did not hit him.

The Spokesman Review reports (https://bit.ly/1fAk87C ) that the owners of Peking North on North Division Street called the police early Monday to report an attempted robbery.

Police say the man was holding a realistic-looking fake gun. Officers ordered him to put it down but he refused. Officers fired, but they didn’t hit the man.

They also tried to stop him with a Taser and eventually took him into custody following a fight in the alley beside the restaurant.

Police didn’t release the man’s name, but said he has an extensive criminal background, including car theft and fights with officers.
