According to the Tacoma Police Department, the shooting took place inside the Alleycat Patio and Lounge in Tacoma, close to Sixth Avenue and N Oakes Street, at roughly 1:30 in the morning.

Four individuals had gunshot wounds when the officers arrived, according to the police. Three victims were taken to a hospital, however, one victim passed away on the spot.

Subsequently, police reported that a second victim had passed away in the hospital and that they had identified a fifth shooting victim.

According to FOX13 Seattle, three of the survivors have non-life-threatening wounds, while the other two sustained significant injuries.

According to Det. William Muse, who spoke with KOMO News, the shooting is not thought to have been random and most likely took place as a result of the suspect interacting with a victim inside the pub.

Four of the gunshot victims are thought to have been spectators, according to Muse, despite the fact that authorities claimed it was unclear what kind of interaction took place or whether there was an argument.

At about 4:30 p.m., the alleged shooter—who has not been named publicly—turned himself in to police and was taken into custody on two charges of first-degree murder and three charges of first-degree assault.
