SPOKANE, Wash. -

Spokane Police made an arrest Tuesday as part of a shooting investigation from January 26. Police say that on that night at least 15 people were involved in a fight in the parking lot of the Hillyard-area Safeway. Police said everyone took off running when gunshots rang out. Several witnesses reported hearing numerous gunshots, although police never did find anyone with injuries.

However, after interviewing multiple witnesses, officers arrested 17-year-old Isiah Cavitt. Cavitt was charged with First-Degree-Assault and Conspiracy. He made his first court appearance Wednesday February 4th and was ordered held on a $75,000 bond. Witnesses say the events that led up to the shooting actually started earlier in the day as an argument at a tattoo parlor. The group initially planned to meet at Rypien Field, but relocated to Safeway.

Police later obtained information that led them to believe the fight and subsequent shooting were gang related. They believed it involved a gang that went by the name "NFL Squad", which is a clique of the "Gangster Disciples". "NFL" is short of "Never Forget Loyalty". Gang Intelligence Officers say Cavitt is a known known associate of "NFL".

The incident remains under investigation and Spokane Police ask that anyone with any more information call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
