Man in critical condition after being shot fleeing South Hill fight on bicycle

A man is in critical condition after being shot in South Hill Friday morning while fleeing a fight on a bicycle, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

The 34-year-old victim was found on 132nd Street East around 8 a.m.

He was taken to an area hospital and is being treated for multiple gunshot wounds.

No one has been arrested but investigators said they are looking for a 20-year-old suspect. He may be driving a black Dodge Challenger with license plate number BOA2709.

Detectives believe the victim argued with several people at a home in the 13100 block of 122nd Street East.

“There was a conflict and (the victim) fled the residence on a bike,” sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said. “Shots were fired near the residence. A second set of shots were fired near where he was found.”

No motive has been determined.

Detectives are interviewing multiple witnesses to determine what led up to the shooting.
