2 men shot to death in car in University Place identified

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Two men who were fatally shot in a car in University Place Monday have been identified.

The News Tribune reports 19-year-old Adrian Valencia and 22-year-old Wilberth Acala were found dead in a Dodge Charger. Both had been shot in the head.

Pierce County sheriff’s detectives say they are looking for two unidentified shooters who were in the car with the men when they were shot.

Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer says authorities are investigating the incident as a possible drug-related homicide.

No arrests have been made.

A neighbor called 911 about 5:30 a.m. after seeing the car blocking the street and two men inside.

Neither Valencia nor Acala lived in the neighborhood and it’s unclear what they were doing there.
