According to Pierce County Sheriff’s Spokesman Ed Troyer, police were looking for 28-year-old suspect Justin Micahel Linn at a hotel on West Main Street in Buckley around 9:30 a.m. Thursday. Linn was allegedly involved in a Spanaway shooting and home invasion two weeks ago and was spotted Thursday morning in Buckley.
