Shooting kills 1, injures another in Tacoma

Tacoma police investigated a shooting Sunday morning that left one person dead and another injured inside a car parked near a restaurant.

Police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said it appeared to be an attempted homicide followed by a suicide.

Witnesses reported gunshots near the restaurant at South 72nd Street near Interstate 5 about 3:30 a.m.

Police arrived to find two people suffering from gunshot wounds inside the car, Cool said.

It appeared one person shot the other and then turned the gun on himself or herself.

The attempted homicide victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment. The person with the gun also was taken to the hospital but died about an hour later, Cool said.

Further details were not released.
