Port of Tacoma commission candidate Jim Jensen has pulled out of the three-person race after anti-environmentalist, racially insensitive and offensive tweets he wrote surfaced. Jensen had deleted his Twitter account just before the tweets were posted by activists and Tacoma politicos.
Jurors found 31-year-old Robert Grott guilty of second-degree murder Tuesday, for fatally shooting 23-year-old Julian “Jay” Thomas in February 2016. Prosecutors argued for first-degree murder — saying that the 48 shots Grott fired at a Tacoma gas station were premeditated. But jurors couldn’t agree on that, and said evidence of the former Marine’s Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder was a focus of deliberations.
