3 arrested in connection with deadly shootings in Keller

The Colville Tribal Emergency Service announced via Facebook that a third suspect was arrested in Elmer City.

NESPELEM, Wash – As of 6:18 p.m. Friday, police have arrested a third suspect in connection with the deadly Keller shooting.

Curry Pinkman was arrested by Colville Tribal Police in Elmer City.

Washington State Patrol (WSP) Sgt. Greg Riddell confirmed to KREM 2 that two people were dead and a Colville Tribal Police officer was injured following a shooting near Keller.

The Colville Tribal Emergency Service alerted Nespelem residents to an active shooter in the area Thursday night and advised residents to stay in their homes.

According to Riddell, Colville Tribe officers responded to the 911 call around 5 p.m. Thursday. When officers arrived at the reported residence, two people were found dead inside.

The identities of the deceased have yet to be revealed.

At some point, another Colville Tribe officer was responding at the scene when he believed he saw a vehicle that matched the description of the suspect vehicle. The officer began pursuing the vehicle and at some point a gunfight broke out.

According to Riddell, the Colville Tribe officer was shot in the arm and chest during the incident. The officer was flown to Harborview in Seattle with non-life threatening injuries.

Riddell said the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Seattle SWAT and WSP SWAT are currently responding to the incident in Nespelem. The FBI is also working to obtain a search warrant.

Riddell said all information WSP received came from Colville Tribal Police, but weak cell phone service in the area made it difficult to provide information.

In a press release, Colville Tribe President Jarred-Michael Erickson said that residents can return to their normal activities. Erickson stated the following:

“Details of this tragic event are still being gathered as law enforcement investigates. We can say that at this point, all three suspects in this weekend’s shooting, the who were arrested last night, are now in police custody.It’s safe for everyone to return to their normal activities.The Colville Tribe thanks the Colville Police Department for its response. this situation and we also thank the many nearby law enforcement agencies for coming and assisting in this investigation.”
