ORIGINAL POST: Three people have been arrested in connection with last night’s fatal shooting in Lacey.
Lacey police arrested the trio about 4:30 this morning at an apartment complex near the shooting scene, The Olympian is reporting. However, Thurston County Chief Criminal Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Andrew Toynbee told the newspaper that Lacey police “are still looking for some people” in connection with the shooting.
One of the suspects in custody is a 19-year-old man who will appear before a judge on suspicion of a first-degree murder charge this afternoon. Two others in custody, including a juvenile, will likely not appear before a judge today, Toynbee said, according to The Olympian.
The victim, a 34-year-old man, was shot in a car at the College Glen Apartments, in the 4800 block of 55th Lane Southeast.
