At 09:42 a.m. on April 12, Deputies responded to a 911 call of a woman reporting a male killed his grandfather at a home near Military Rd E and 50 Ave Ct E. Deputies responded and surrounded the residence. They made announcements over the loudspeaker for the male to come out of the house. The 29 year old male suspect complied and deputies took him into custody.
Deputies then made their way up to the house and had to force the door open. They discovered the 80 year old grandfather deceased inside the home.
Detectives and Forensic Investigators were called out to document the scene and collect evidence.
The suspect has been interviewed and will be booked into the Pierce County Jail for murder.
