Two people are charged in the fatal shooting of 22-year-old JBLM soldier Da'Quan Foster, according to the Pierce County prosecutor's office. 

Foster's wife was also injured. 

Police served an arrest warrant in South Seattle on Monday night. Randy Donaldson was taken into custody. He was charged on Tuesday with second-degree murder, first-degree assault, and unlawful possession of a firearm. 

Marshall Wilson was charged with the same crimes last week. Wilson and Donaldson pleaded not guilty at his arraignment.   

Wilson is a 34-year-old rap music promoter, according to The Tacoma News Tribune. On a Facebook page under Wilson’s stage name, Hermes Hush, promotions for performances include images of Wilson alongside performer Y-Sic, believed to be the stage name of Donaldson.

About the shooting 

Foster was gunned down on Oct. 29 at a restaurant on Tacoma's south side. The Pierce County medical examiner identified him the next day. 

Tacoma police said Foster came out to Latitude 84 with his wife and friends Saturday night. The restaurant, which also is a late-night spot, is in the 8400 block of South Hosmer in Tacoma.

Tacoma Police Public Information Officer Loretta Cool said Foster and his party tried to walk away, but the suspects opened fire on them.

She stressed that Foster was walking away and may have had his back turned when the suspects opened fire. 

“This man appears to have been murdered for no reason, nothing that he was involved in. We're asking that people help us to determine what happened," Cool said.
