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

Victor Schwenke was killed during a party at a home in the 5600 block of South Yakima Avenue on Nov. 16.

Unidentified suspects got into a confrontation in front of the home where the party was being held. The suspects were not invited to the party and were told to leave. Gunfire erupted just after 12:45 a.m., killing Schwenke.

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.

Tipsters should call 253-591-5959.
