LACEY, Wash. - Police arrested two Lacey residents Friday evening in connection with the triple-shooting in a Lacey home that killed one man and injured two other men on Monday, according to the Lacey Police Department.
According to police, the shooting happened on Daniel Loop Southeast.
Lacey Police Cmdr. Jim Mack said the man who died was shot in the head.
One of the two injured men was shot below the waist and the other suffered a gunshot wound in the chest. The surviving two victims were taken to St. Peter's Hospital. The conditions of the two men are unknown at this time.
After the shooting occurred, police thought the shooter fled to a house in the 5900 block of Stockton, which was a few blocks away. Officers surrounded the house and called for a SWAT team.
During the incident, eight North Thurston schools were on lockdown on Monday morning.
Two people were taken into custody, but Mack later said authorities didn’t believe they were involved in the shooting.
Investigators spent the week getting leads in Thurston and Pierce counties, said officials. Mack said about a dozen detectives and officers worked the case.
According to police, officers recovered a handgun that they believe was used in the shooting.
The two unidentified suspects were booked into the Thurston County Jail for investigation of first-degree murder and attempted murder.
