Tacoma police are asking the public to help them find a murder suspect.
On Thursday, police released the photo of Yancy “Slim” Ray, 50, wanted in connection with a fatal shooting Saturday in Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood. Pierce County prosecutors have charged Ray in absentia with second-degree murder. He has an active warrant for his arrest.
Charges say Ray fatally shot Hyson Sabb after the two men argued outside the home of a friend in the 1500 block of South L Street.
Police said Ray is 6 feet 2, 175 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
In the past he has used the alias “Yancy Grayson.” He has an extensive criminal history, including a 1986 conviction in Oregon for manslaughter. Police say he is considered armed and dangerous.
