Police are searching for a suspect in a fatal shooting in Tacoma Saturday night.

A man was having a house party at his residence on the 2000 block of S 29th St. when an unknown male showed up in a light-colored older SUV. 

The resident and the suspect got into a fight.  The suspect pulled a gun, shot a round into the ground and then multiple rounds into the male resident. 

The suspect then fled. 

The victim was taken to Tacoma General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

Witnesses thought the suspect was from the military due to his appearance, but police say there was no solid evidence of this.
