An unknown assailant fled after shooting four people in Washington, according to police.
Just before 4:30 p.m. Oct. 21, the shooter opened fire on two men, ages 19 and 22, and two women, ages 22 and 42, in an alleyway behind a Tacoma residence, police said.
The two female victims and one of the males died at the scene. The second man later passed away from his injuries at an area hospital.
The unknown suspect or suspects are reportedly still at large.
One neighbor said she went to her porch after hearing gunshots and spotted a male running away from the scene behind homes to a waiting black vehicle that drove off when he got in, the Takoma News Tribune reported.
“I was working from home and it was so loud that my person on the phone was like, ‘Is everything okay?’,” the eyewitness recalled.
A second neighbor reported hearing six or seven gunshots, according to the publication.
