Spokane Spokesman Review
SPOKANE, Wash. — A SWAT team broke into a shooting suspect's Coeur d'Alene apartment Thursday and found him asleep in a back bedroom.
"He slept through a fairly large bang when (the police) broke in," Sgt. Christie Wood of the Coeur d'Alene Police Department said.
Zebulon R. Batke, 33, allegedly fired into a duplex where his ex-girlfriend lives in the 700 block of Third Street at 2:30 Thursday morning. No one was injured in the shooting.
