Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers is now offering a reward in last week’s slaying of a 25-year-old man inside his South Hill home.

Investigators say someone shot and killed Nicholas Looney about 3:25 a.m. Thursday at his home in the 14600 block of 117th Avenue Court East. Looney had been standing at his bedroom window when he was shot several times through the window.

Witnesses heard the shots, then saw three suspects run from the home, deputies reported. No descriptions of the suspects have been released.

Detectives found evidence of drugs inside the home. They are investigating whether the drugs were part of the motive for Looney’s slaying.

Detectives ask anyone with information on the slaying to contact Crime Stoppers at 253-591-5959. Crime Stoppers is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to arrests and charges filed in the case.
