Gunman sought in shooting outside Parkland bar

Pierce County sheriff’s detectives are looking for a gunman who shot and wounded a man outside a Parkland bar over the weekend.

The victim, a 34-year-old Puyallup man, was shot in both legs, the abdomen and a wrist. He remains in the hospital in critical condition and is expected to survive.

Another man was also shot and injured and is listed in stable condition. A third man, 29, of Spanaway, suffered a head injury during the assault.

At least two of the victims are U.S. Navy veterans.

No one has been arrested for the attack.

Employees of a sports bar at 10707 Pacific Avenue South called 911 about 2:20 a.m. Sunday to report the confrontation, which took place in the parking lot.

It’s unclear what prompted the argument between two groups of men who had been inside of the sports bar earlier. Witnesses said the gunman’s group had about five men.

Investigators are reviewing surveillance footage from nearby businesses and working to identify the shooter.
