Lawrence House, victim in random killing

TACOMA – Pierce County prosecutor Mark Lindquist said that two suspects are in custody in connection with a murder in a Tacoma parking garage on Sept. 5. Lindquist said that he will likely charge the suspects with first-degree murder and first-degree robbery. Other charges may also be filed.

Lindquist applauded police who located the suspect while investigating a different robbery.

Lawrence Howse, 54, was robbed and killed shortly before 10 p.m. on Sept. 5. Police said Howse drove his car into the parking garage of the Sky Terrace Condominiums in the 200 block of S. Broadway in downtown Tacoma.

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