Montana Pair Causes Standoff, Shooting in Spokane

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Officials say a couple with ties to the Flathead caused a standoff in Spokane Tuesday morning that led to an officer involved shooting.

Our sister station KHQ reports just after midnight, deputies responded to a Motel 6 for a reported stolen vehicle. They learned the people associated with the vehicle were armed and had outstanding felony warrants from Montana.

The couple was later identified as 37-year-old Bonnie Crystal Ulrick and 32-year-old Erik Heil.

After hours of negotiations, officers shot Ulrick in the hand. She was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Her warrant was for probation violations on drug charges, deceptive practices and accountability to burglary.

Heil was convicted of burglary in 2001 and deceptive practices in 2007. Officers say he broke his probation agreement by testing positive for methamphetamine in June. He was arrested and released and officers have been looking for him ever since.

Officials say the pair will likely face charges in Washington before being brought back to Montana.
