Homicide in Bonney Lake

At 7:20 pm, on Saturday June 8th, our deputies were dispatched to a call of a shooting at the 11100 block of 166th Ave E in Bonney Lake.

Deputies arrived on scene and were flagged down by the first victim who had been shot. The caller reported someone else in the home was deceased.

Deputies called out to the people inside and detained the suspect who had already put his gun away.

They located a 23-year-old man inside the home with several gunshot wounds. Fire was immediately waived in to administer first aid to the victim, but he unfortunately died at the scene.

Detectives and forensic investigators were called to the scene to investigate.

Deputies and detectives were told the suspect and victim were roommates and an argument broke out before the suspect shot his victim. The second shooting victim, a 24-year-old man, did not live at the home and he had a non-life threatening injury.

The 22-year-old suspect had a graze wound and was taken to the hospital. Once he is cleared medically he will be booked into the Pierce County Jail for Murder in the 2nd Degree.
