Investigation underway after man shot, killed in Graham

Pierce County sheriff’s deputies are investigating after a man was shot and killed Sunday afternoon in Graham.

According to the sheriff’s department, the incident began in the 25600 block of 61st Avenue Court East. At 4:13 p.m., police received a call reporting a man chasing another man and shooting at him.

A woman later called and said someone was banging on her window. The woman hid and when deputies arrived she found the man dead inside of her home with her back sliding glass door broken.

“We don’t know if gunfire broke the window or if he ended up collapsing inside her window,” Sgt. Darren Moss Jr. said. “The slider’s broken and there’s a dead guy on her floor.”

The shooter ran away into nearby woods. Deputies searched the area with canines and air support but could not find them.

According to the sheriff’s department, the shooter does not live in Graham.

The woman who called deputies was unharmed.
