Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward to help solve the shooting death of an 18-year-old Tacoma man.

Detectives want any information on the identity of the suspects involved the shooting. Any people at the party also are asked to come forward.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to arrests and charges filed in the case. Callers may remain anonymous.
