Washington suspect turns self in after bar shooting kills 2, injures 3

A suspect in a deadly bar shooting in Tacoma, Washington, has turned himself in to police and was arrested on two counts of first-degree murder.

A double homicide suspect in Washington state turned himself in to police on Sunday after a shooting at a bar killed two victims and wounded three more, authorities said.

The shooting happened around 1:30 a.m. inside the Alleycat Patio and Lounge in Tacoma near Sixth Avenue and N Oakes Street, the Tacoma Police Department said.

Officers arrived and found four victims with gunshot wounds, police said. One victim died at the scene while the three others were rushed to a hospital.

Police later said that a fifth shooting victim was located and that a second victim had died at the hospital.

Det. William Muse told KOMO News that the shooting is not believed to have been random and likely happened after the suspect had an interaction with one of the victims inside the bar.
