According to the Tacoma Police Department (TPD), at 11:31 p.m. on Nov. 21, officers were dispatched to the corner of E M St. and Puyallup Ave. for reports of shots fired.
When police arrived, they found a man with a gunshot wound. First responders immediately performed life-saving measures, but he was later pronounced dead at the scene.
TPD detectives identified the 30-year-old suspect, and began searching for him.
On Dec. 5, officers in Spokane contacted the TPD – informing them that they have arrested the suspect for first-degree murder.
Details about whether the suspect fled to Spokane, or traveled to Tacoma to commit the crime are limited at this time.
This is a developing story.
