One man was shot and seriously injured Wednesday night during an argument outside a South End motel, Tacoma police reported.

The victim was hit in the neck and taken to a local hospital for treatment. His injuries were not considered life threatening this morning, Tacoma police officer Naveed Benjamin said.

The shooting occurred just before 10:30 p.m. The victim and another man had been at the Calico Cat, 8821 Pacific Ave.

While in the parking lot, an argument erupted between the two and a third man. The third man reportedly assaulted the victim, Benjamin said.

The man with the victim put the victim in a car and drove off, heading for a hospital. Tacoma police officers stopped the car in the area of Tacoma Avenue and Center Streets.

The victim was then taken to the hospital.

Detectives were called out and were investigating. No description of the suspect has been released.

  1. Is the location a secret? I don’t understand why so many TNT stories do not have who, what, where, when, why and how in them.
