The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office has released the name of a woman who was killed late Sunday in an East Side home.

Michelle Davis, 26, was fatally shot while she slept on the couch of a home in the 8400 block of East D Street.

Tacoma police investigators have said her ex-boyfriend shot Davis and injured another man, then left the home.

The suspect, identified as 22-year-year-old Marcus Robinson, was later found dead outside Larchmont Elementary School. Investigators believe he shot himself.

The injured man was shot 11 times and was expected to survive his injuries.

    The injured man was shot 11? What does that mean? He was shot 11 times? You need a better editor. (I know how rushed it gets in there so no biggie)

    I think it means he was shot 11 tacos. What the hell to you think it means?

    Odd, they have the picture of the dead Rainier shooter all over the paper yet none of this killer from the same day. I wonder if he’s also blond haired and blue eyed.

  4. What ? no mugshot of Marcus Robinson with his braids and orange jump suit ?

  5. Also didn’t state what his past career, or lack of career, “or income source” This paper can’t wait to announce when a soldier does something, but you never read, “lifelong welfare recipiant, shot and killed girlfriend” This paper LOVES to get their digs in on the military every chance it gets…………even when it has nothing to do with the story!

    Some of you complaining about disparities in coverage are absolutely ridiculous. You compare apples to oranges trying to work some sort of racial or socio-cultural bias angle. SERIOUSLY FOLKS?? I know there are some intelligent, mature, and thoughtful people out there… aren’t there?

    The man shot is my brother-in-law. Michelle is my baby sister. Depsite all the non-sense of the comments my family is at a huge loss. If you don’t understand the pain, don’t make comments.
