TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Tacoma Police shot and killed an armed robbery suspect late Thursday night at a Marriott Hotel.
Police were called to the hotel on Commerce Street around 10:45 p.m. Thursday. A victim and witness were there when officers arrived.
Officers set up a search with a K9, which led them to Dock Street near the 11th street bridge around 11:20 p.m. Police say the suspect refused to show his hands and shots were fired within a minute after they found him.
