Murder suspect NOT from Humptulips

January 14, 2014

After seeing a murder suspect’s tattoos showing his love for Washington, including the state outline and WA on his cheekbones and “SPOKANE” across his forehead, KIRO reporter Dori Monson tweeted “My only regret is that this guy isn’t from Humptulips”.

Brandon Mellon, 26, was arrested after he accidentally shot himself when he reportedly thought he was getting pulled over by police.

Police say investigators had determined Mellon was a person of interest in a fatal shooting in Spokane and they were looking for him.

Mellon was taken to a hospital in Portland in critical condition.

The Spokesman-Review reports he’s under guard and will be returned to Spokane for the homicide case.
