TACOMA, Wash. — A teenager who was shot earlier this week in Tacoma has died.
Officials said Friday that 18-year-old Chase Seibold died after being shot with a shotgun on Monday. It happened near the intersection of E. 32nd Street and E. R Street.
The News Tribune reports Seibold’s 35-year-old uncle was also shot but is expected to survive.
Pierce County prosecutors have charged Wesley Armstead with attempted murder, two counts of assault and unlawful possession of a firearm in connection with Monday’s shooting.
Armstead pleaded not guilty and is being held on $1 million bail.
The charges are expected to be amended because the teen died.
Police do not believe Armstead knew Seibold or his uncle, and that the shooting was something of a misunderstanding after Armstead thought they were yelling at him.
