Pierce County sheriff’s detectives are investigating a shooting that wounded one man and most likely a second person in University Place early Friday.
Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said it appears at least two people were in a car headed north on Lakewood Drive West near the Meadow Park Golf Course about 1:30 a.m. when another car drew alongside.
Someone in the second car opened fire on the first car, Troyer said.
The driver of the first car was hit multiple times and suffered life-threatening injuries. Evidence indicates a passenger also was hit, but that person fled on foot before help arrived, Troyer said.
Never miss a local story.
Detectives had little information to go on Friday afternoon, Troyer added.
