Spokane police say a woman they initially thought was suffering from a drug overdose had died from a gunshot wound.
Tuesday morning around 10:30, police received a report of an unknown trouble at an apartment in the 2900 block of East Diamond. A man calling told police a woman was having a problem and there may have been a gunshot.
Officers responded and found a woman vomiting. They say there was a large amount of drug paraphernalia in the residence, which led them to believe she was suffering a drug overdose.
It was at the hospital where medical personnel discovered she had been shot in the abdomen.
The woman was reported dead Wednesday morning.
Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
