Andersen remains in the Spokane County Jail, with a set bond of over $1 million, charged with first-degree murder, two counts of attempted first-degree murder, attempting to elude a police vehicle, first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm and a Washington State Department of Corrections hold.
Hours after the murder of Hirsch, a male and female were observed in Walmart at 9212 N. Colton. The male entered the store, purchased items, and met with the female who was driving an SUV. The female then contacted Andersen who was driving the Red/Tan Ford Expedition and provided him with some of the items from the store.
Believing the male and female interacted with Andersen within hours after the murder and may have additional information, which would be pertinent to the investigation.
