Creach drawing gun when shot, police say
Brian Hirzel said he ordered Pastor Wayne Scott Creach to drop his gun multiple times, struck the 74-year-old man in the leg with a police baton and fired only after the property owner began to draw the gun out of his waistband. The autopsy following the shooting showed no corresponding mark on Creach’s leg from a baton strike, McGovern said.
Hirzel told investigators that he didn’t know the business owner lived next door to the Plant Farm...[and]... that he told Creach four to six times that he was an officer and that Creach needed to “drop the weapon.” “Mr. Creach answered a few times, saying he didn’t have to...
Kirkpatrick said she hopes the case will be handed over to the Spokane County Prosecutor’s Office by early next week.
I am disturbed that the killer is allowed a vacation. According to the killers own confession it doesn't appear that any of his orders had the authority of law. It seems to be clear, at this point, that this is murder. He assaulted the elderly pastor and then murdered him. We will see if justice is served or subverted.
I know, you probably wanted this guy to already have gotten the gallows, but real justice takes time and this is how it's done right.
It's not like they could have dragged him out behind the building and put a bullet in his head like you want.
I have already shown what goes into an investigation, obviously you failed to read it.

Lunsford said in court that Crawford drove to the property on Aug. 10 and Shifflett walked over to him with a firearm. Believing that Crawford was about to reach for a gun, Lunsford said in court, Shifflett hit Crawford on the face with a flashlight. Authorities believe Crawford then fired a shot, which hit Shifflett in the ear.
Crawford was then shot and killed, authorities have said.
“This case has a good argument for self-defense,” Hallahan said in court.
The prosecutor acknowledged in court that the case may be an issue of self-defense.
Shifflett, 48, faces a first-degree murder charge and related firearms charges in connection with the Aug. 10 incident on Buck Mountain Ford Lane in which he and neighbor Gifford Trix “Trixie” Crawford, 68, exchanged fire during an encounter that Shifflett’s lawyer described as self defense.
Shifflett was arrested immediately upon being released from the University of Virginia Medical Center,
He was cooperative when police arrived. Police expect to arrest the suspect, according to a news release.
The interview that revealed those details didn’t come until Friday, after Hirzel returned from Las Vegas, more than a week after the shooting.
“I think we need to look at the mentality of a man who could do that and then go to Las Vegas on top of it,” Creach said. “To me, after something as grave as that, I couldn’t have taken that vacation. I would have thought that will reflect poorly on everybody, including myself. I have just taken from this family and for me to do that would be heartless and cruel.”
