A University Place man was found shot to death inside his home late Thursday morning in what investigators are calling a homicide.

The man, who was in his 50s, was killed sometime between 7 p.m. Wednesday and then, Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said.

He had multiple gunshot wounds.

Detectives canvassed the neighborhood Thursday afternoon looking for leads on how the man was killed.
