Man seriously injured in midday shooting in Tacoma, police searching for suspect

Police in Tacoma are investigating a midday shooting that left a man seriously injured. 

Public Information Officer Wendy Haddow said officers responded about 12:30 p.m. to a shooting in the 2400 block of South 64th Street. 

The 43-year-old man who was shot in the face and taken to a local hospital in stable, but critical condition, she said. The shooting apparently stemmed from an argument between roommates.

The shooting scene is located across the street from a popular community park. Parents visiting with their children said they are frustrated kids are witnessing yet another crime scene in the city.

"This is getting ridiculous and redundant. We should not have to worry about our kids being out here to play and get shot. That’s not cool," said Kanda Patton while at the park with her daughter watching the investigation unfold.

Detectives are searching for the shooting suspect. Investigators have not released any additional information. This story will be updated as we learn more.
