A 17-year-old boy was fatally shot late Tuesday on a Tacoma road, police said.

Antonio Douglas, of Federal Way, sought medical treatment at St. Francis Hospital about 11:40 p.m. for a gunshot wound.

He was pronounced dead shortly afterward.

Medical staff called police to report a possible shooting, and Federal Way police were able to determine the shooting took place in the 3600 block of Marine View Drive.

Tacoma police took over the case and sent detectives to process the scene.

Investigators have not said what led up to the shooting, but a 17-year-old boy was booked into Remann Hall juvenile detention center Wednesday morning in connection with Douglas’ death.

Pierce County prosecutors are reviewing the case and could make a charging decisions as soon as Thursday.
