A man suspected of fatally shooting a partygoer at a Tacoma house early Sunday has been booked into Pierce County Jail.
Police arrested the man Monday night outside Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Spokesman Mark Fulghum said it’s unclear whether the alleged shooter was trying to catch a flight.
The News Tribune is not naming the man because he has not been charged with a crime. He is expected to be charged Wednesday.
The shooting happened about 12:45 a.m. Sunday at a house in the 2000 block of South 29th Street.
Witnesses told detectives the shooter arrived and got into an argument with the victim, 30-year-old Jimmy Arevalo. It’s unclear what the disagreement was about, but the man pulled a handgun and fired one round into the ground before shooting Arevalo several times.
