TACOMA, Wash. -- The FBI is investigating a fatal Puyallup Tribal Police Department-involved shooting at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma.

Details are scarce as of midday Tuesday (Oct. 16), but the Puyallup Tribe did say that there was an officer-involved shooting that resulted in a fatality. An officer has been placed on paid administrative leave, per protocol, and the FBI has been called in to investigate.

The FBI has not released the name of the person or persons who were shot, nor the officer or officers involved.

The shooting happened about 1 a.m. in the casino's parking lot.

The casino's parking lot was taped off for much of the morning -- and there was a smashed up police cruiser in the parking lot.

No officers were injured, officials said.
