Police, neighborhood on high alert following random killing


Victim in random killing, Larence Howse

TACOMA – Tacoma police hope you can help them track down two murder suspects, accused of robbing and killing 54-year-old Lawrence Howse Saturday.

Just before 10 p.m. on Saturday, police say Howse drove his car into the parking garage of the Sky Terrace Condominiums in the 200 block of S. Broadway in downtown Tacoma.

Witnesses said they saw two suspects walk into the garage immediately after the victim’s vehicle. Detectives believe the victim was randomly targeted by the suspects, who robbed the victim before fatally shooting him and running away.

The suspects are described as two black males in their late teens or early 20’s with average builds.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

    The media does seem a little slow reporting this crime. Too much Bumbershoot? Terrible news. Eventually, the suspects will be caught and taxpayers will have to pay for their accommodations for the next 30 years. Bring back the death penalty.
