FBI: Armed and dangerous fugitive may be in Portland area

TACOMA, Wash. — Authorities have charged the wife of a Tacoma shooting suspect with helping him flee to Oregon.

The News Tribune reports that 51-year-old Tracey Tamara Norris was charged Friday with first-degree rendering criminal assistance. A not-guilty plea was entered on her behalf at arraignment.

Investigators are trying to find her husband, 50-year-old Yancy Ray, who is charged with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of Hyson Sabb on Sept. 3.

Detectives say they questioned Norris, and she told them she took her husband to Kent, but she couldn't remember exactly where. They say she admitted being in Portland two days after the shooting, but that she claimed she was visiting relatives without him.

According to court documents, detectives found an eyeglasses receipt from a Portland store when they searched her house. They say Ray had left glasses behind at the shooting scene, and surveillance video from the store showed the couple together.

The FBI announced Friday that Ray might be staying in the Portland area.

Crime Stoppers of Tacoma is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to Ray’s arrest. You can leave a tip for Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
