TACOMA, Wash. (TCD) -- Two 17-year-old males were arrested for their alleged involvement in a shooting that killed a 14-year-old girl.
According to a statement, on July 6 at 11:35 a.m., Tacoma Police Department officers received a shots fired call in the area of South 19th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way. Soon after, police received another call about a shooting victim on the 1900 block of South Ainsworth.
During their investigation, police reportedly determined a group of juveniles had been sitting in a car in that area when gunfire broke out. A 14-year-old girl was hit by a bullet and killed. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
On July 7 at around 4 p.m., Tacoma Police officers arrested a 17-year-old without incident for first-degree murder. Just under three hours later, at 6:45 p.m., another 17-year-old turned himself in. He, too, was booked on a first-degree murder charge.
