    SPOKANE -- A driver has been shot and wounded in an attempted carjacking at Buckeye and Division while the gunman was found a little over an hour later hiding inside a dog house.

    An eyewitness to the carjacking says that a white Mitsubishi GT was stopped at the eastbound light at Division and Buckeye when a man got in the vehicle from the passenger side.

    The driver attempted to get out at which point eyewitnesses heard a 'pop' and then saw the driver lying in the roadway.

    One wounded, one in custody after carjacking attempt

    December 18, 2009

    One man is in critical condition and a suspect is in custody following an attempted carjacking at the intersection of Buckeye and Division Friday afternoon. KXLY4's Erik Loney and Sally Showman report.

    The suspect then tried to start the vehicle, was unable to and then fled on foot.

    First responders did CPR on the driver and then transported him by ambulance to a hospital. The driver is reportedly in critical condition, according to police spokesperson Jennifer DeRuwe.

    Garfield Elementary, located at 222 West Knox Avenue six blocks south of Buckeye and Division, was placed in lockdown according to district spokesperson Terren Roloff. Around 4 p.m. the lockdown was lifted and students were allowed to leave the school.

    Meanwhile officers, including a K-9 team, began tracking the suspect and found him hiding in a dog house at a home in the 2500 block of North Normandie. Eyewitnesses were escorted to the home to verify the identity of the person in custody and a short time later a detective confirmed the man in custody was the suspect.

    Early Friday evening authorities confirmed the suspect, 30-year-old Joseph Ellery, was booked into the Spokane County Jail on a charge of 1st Degree Assault. Police found a gun behind the Party Palace, less than a block south of where the attempted carjacking and shooting happened.

    Always lock your doors before you leave. Especially all of you females out there! I know my girlfriend loves to not hit that lock button when she gets in.

    Lock your doors; keep the windows up; keep the car in gear; allow enough space between you and the car in front of you; ideally, be in a lane that allows an "exit" route; keep your head on a swivel; watch for anything out of place; do NOT allow a person to aggressively reach your driver-side window. Simple steps that can make the difference.

    At some point, these steps simply become the normal, everyday part of how you go about driving around in a risky world. Doesn't take any more time or attention than normal. It isn't stressful to do these steps. You just do the locks and windows, and allow the space, making sure to keep aware of your surroundings. Little different than anywhere else.

    Good points...actually, common sense and so EASY to do...saves one from a lot of potential problems. Locking doors, especially, should become 'muscle memory' upon entering a vehicle.
    I usually try and keep enough distance away from the vehicle in front so as to be able to see the rear tires of that vehicle.

    Stay armed...think about 'car safety'...stay safe!

    The "leaving an exit" helped save me, one day, on the highway. Bright, sunny day, lots of people lallygagging on the road and not paying attention. 65mph zone, with folks going 85mph or more. Ahead of me, the traffic was backing up. I slowed and was approaching ~20mph behind the car in front of me, when I noticed a car in my rear-view mirror coming at me at ~90mph and not paying attention. Coming right at me. Let's just say I was able to jump aside as he whooshed by, and that gave him sufficient room and time to avoid smacking the car that had been ahead of me. Saved me, saved him, saved the poor schmuck who was doing ~90. We continued along on the road, doing 10-15mph, and the "poor schmuck" (who had been doing ~90) kept going too dang fast, instead opting to take the "out" to the side of the road each time he failed to use his brakes soon enough. There was nowhere else to go, else I would have left the area. That guy was bonkers.

    Moral: you never know what you're gonna get. So, pay attention and do some of those common sense things momma always told you about.

    I have those damn annoying automatic door locks on both of my Pontiacs, and I love it! On one I need to remember to lock the doors once I get in because they don't auto-lock until I put it in drive, but they don't unlock until I turn off the ignition. The other car locks when put in drive or reverse and unlocks when shifting to park-not perfect but locked most of the time. I've also been real careful to stop far enough behind a vehicle that I can see where the rear tires meet the ground-I have room to escape if needed. Sounds like the driver did the best he could minus keeping the doors locked-hope he survives.

    There are some little features on cars that I find so damn nice and some people just lose their minds trying to overide them. Automatic door locks, daytime running lights, automatic headlights, anti-lock brakes, and traction control. These things contribute so much to preventing accidents rather than surviving them-I'd take ABS, DRL, and auto headlamps over air bags any day of the week.

    As a life and living rule of thumb;

    'If it has a lock, use the lock. It's there for good and _purposeful_ reason.'

    Simply making use of a <fill in the blank purpose> lock can literally save ones own life.

    Wait a minute. The BG shoots the driver and the driver had to have CPR performed on site, and is now in critical condition at the hospital, The BG attempts to steal the car, and all the BG gets a 1st degree assault charge????

    In all likelihood that is just the initial charge to get the BG in jail. Further charges will probably be filed as the investigate presents more facts of the situation the prosecutor.

    I have automatic door lock that engage when the car is placed in gear. However, as soon as I get in and close the door I hit the lock button, even before starting the car. Especially when on a parking lot.

    Unfortunately I don't have auto locking doors, but as soon as I close my door I too hit the lock button, before I do anything else. It has become second nature just like putting on a seat belt.

    Keeping his doors locked and being aware of his surroundings might have prevented this.

    I do the same with my car locks. I don't wait until I reach 5~7 mph for the auto-lock feature to activate.

    Yeah, I'm thinking att. murder /carjacking, etc etc,,,,,,^^^^^^^^

    Sounds as if the driver had the presence of mind to maybe pull the keys out , and that may be what angered the knuckledragger,???
