SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Spokane police are investigating whether a medical marijuana grower was justified in shooting a man she says was trying to steal part of her backyard crop.

The man was found two hours later Monday with a head wound. Police say a second man also may have been wounded, but he was not found.

The Spokesman-Review reports (http://bit.ly/pF2L5f ) the woman has a medical marijuana authorization, but police are checking for any drug violations.
