Jonathan Watson met with reporters this afternoon to talk about the death of his brother, David, and to ask for the public’s help in finding his killer or killers.

David Watson died Sunday after being shot in the parking lot of convenience store at South 56th and South Lawrence streets. The 45-year-old Tacoma native managed to drive his pickup two blocks before passing out and wrecking. He later died at a local hospital. You can find more on the story here.

Jonathan Watson, meeting with reporters at Tacoma police headquarters, said his brother was a quiet person who doted on his dog and did odd jobs. He said he hoped anyone who knows anything about the killing will call police. Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to someone being arrested and charged in the case. Reach Crime Stoppers at 253-591-5959.
