Pierce County medical examiners identified the man killed Sunday morning in a Tacoma shooting as a 22-year-old Joint Base Lewis-McChord resident.

Daquan Foster died Sunday morning after a shooting on the 8400 block of South Hosmer Street. Tacoma police responded to a report of shots fired at 1:40 a.m., department spokesman Loretta Cool said. When they arrived at a parking lot, they found Foster and a female, also in her 20s, with gunshot wounds, Cool said.

Both were transported to Tacoma General Hospital, where the man was declared dead. The woman had minor injuries.
